If you follow us on any social media, you know that I totally overuse the hashtags #luckiestwomanalive and #artdealerslife. Mostly, I just can’t contain my enthusiasm because you see I still can’t get over that every morning I get to go to this beautiful place (that I call work!) surrounded by the most incredible art, made by smart, thoughtful, dedicated, passionate and incredibly wonderful people whom I get to call my business partners. It’s all still pretty surreal for this country girl from Vermont.
I posted just yesterday how excited I was about the new show, how I wanted to live in the paintings. It’s amazing, I could get lost in the brushstrokes for days. They are worlds unto themselves. Sometimes you feel as if you could eat them. Yes! EAT THEM!!! They are so alive and consuming that you want to make them a part of you.
Every month, my gallery is completely transformed by yet another brilliant artist’s vision. Every month I get to see completely new again. Every month, I get more excited than a kid before their birthday. And every month, I get completely lost again.
And so this is how it goes. Day in and day out.
And then people come to visit the exhibitions. And then they get to see and feel and experience what I get to be a part of all day long. A lot of people visit my exhibitions three or four times in a single month. Many of them write me later thanking me for making that space available to them. And some are so lucky as to be able to take a piece of it home with them.
Art is powerful. It is trans-formative. To experience that is to be alive. To live with it is such wonderful privilege. And some of our amazing clients, most who have become friends over the years, have shared a little glimpse of that wonder and delight here with us!! I hope you’ll take some time & take a peek!
