I titled this post Changes because I haven’t blogged in about 2 years.  Lots has changed here since 2014.  At that time I had just started to combine my love of refinishing old furniture with the Gallery.  We have sanded, painted, distressed, waxed and glazed  our way into 2016.  We have displayed and sold many beautiful furniture pieces.

The Gallery has morphed into an even more creative space to be and work. Not only are we doing custom framing and carrying awesome work from artists all over the country but we have added canvas paint classes, painted furniture, furniture paint classes and even a line of chalk paint  (Country Chic).

The artists who work here with me are crazy talented!  They have embraced the new lines and ideas with enormous excitement. The extent of their talent is nothing short of amazing and my hope is to continue (with their help) to create inspiring work!

I promise to share more often what we are doing and planning on doing as the year unfolds.  Till then…



document-3Welcome to 2014 at Gallery 143. It’s been a while since I posted anything. We have been busy here at the store. We introduced Handpainted Vintage Furniture into the Gallery in late September and that has kept us very busy. We are excited to add the painted furniture into the mix here at the Gallery. The handcrafted art looks awesome sitting on it too. It’s a nice mix of old and new. We currently have a gorgeous pale green buffet, several small accent tables, a large armoire and a funky yellow dresser. Lots to see and lots more to come.

As we step into the new year, we also look for great new art to bring your way. We have some framed Curly Girl prints that are adorable along with some metal Curly Girl Houses. We have glass hearts on their way for your favorite valentine and lots more to come.

I am excited about all that we can do in the new year. My mind is racing with ideas and I look forward to what the new year brings. Stop in and be inspired with the creativity of the artists we represent and if you find something you can’t live without, that’s great! I am always happy to send a piece home with someone who loves it!!!

Stay warm and stop in to see what’s new! Joan
