The Village Cafe and Art979 Gallery Art Show

The Village Cafe is filled with my artwork!! What a very cool and surreal feeling!!! It was jam packed Friday night for First Friday art walk downtown. It was a fun atmosphere with music and friends. This picture is taken from the back of the cafe looking toward the front door.
These are my newest medium, alcohol ink. I received many comments on these. They are fascinating to look at up close with the vibrant colors and abstract shapes. This is the front of the cafe just as you walk in.
I will be doing more of these for my next show in October.
"Sailing On" right by the front door.
Across from the alcohol inks....
It's really fun to walk in and see people sitting with these paintings!
Great windows all the way down the west side of the building. I think the building is from the early 1900's and still has the original floor. If these walls could talk.....
Towards the middle of the cafe. It took 51 paintings to fill all these walls! The space is long and narrow but there is a lot of wall left even with all the windows.
Dining in Venice.
And even 'Tubin' with Rick.....
The show will stay up for the rest of August. The Village will have a reception for me on the 26th. In the meantime, I am gearing up for the next thing....painting LIVE for the Art Center fundraiser in September.....eek!
Thank you to all those who could come out Friday. And thank you to all who sent encouraging notes and comments!! Hugs!!
