Updating the website

Updating the Website:
Please check it out!
I am in the process of revamping the site. This is a simple format that I picked during the interim.
Now is the time for suggestions. If you want me to include anything special?
or get rid of some… Please tell me!
My goal is to set up 20 Galleries; one for each of the Artists, with cross promotion to their websites.
Web sales and a blog, and with high hopes of video...
With my sincere appreciation thank you for your help!

The Green Man
Joshua Cohen: Stained Glass Artist

I am still waiting for Joshua to bring me more glass….

Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things. ~Author Unknown

What a day! I’ve received my official papers! Life at the gallery is going crazy great!
I have the best artists ever! Meeting all these talented artists, has been the best part of this journey.

I am so grateful for all the help and encouraging words from everyone.
My memory is jumbled and a big blur! I think all the smiling and laughing I did this week went to my head.
So if I didn’t thank someone… I would like to now; thank you, and especially a big THANK YOU to Donnie Schmidt!
Today we managed to do an inventory of the storage room, a huge help to me.
A little angel I know… sent her to look over me or is it the gallery? Either way her hard work is greatly appreciated.

Later on in the day, Charles and John stopped in. They kept me on my toes with their charming banter, and all their suggestions are appreciated too.
PS…Someone remind me to stock the refrigerator again.
Have a great night, Keep Creating!

A question to all my savvy web friends:
I am so trying to revamp the website… any suggestions of which company to use?

Ronnie Seiden Moss

Artist: Ronnie Seiden Moss “Gazebo”
at the PH Gallery

Autumn is on its way…

Believe in yourself, your neighbors, your work, your ultimate attainment of more complete happiness. It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in Autumn.
- B. C. Forbes

I must have typed four different blog postings and lost them! I need to figure out a better system! So… I took a nice long break and read some wonderful poetry. I believe it nourishes the soul. I am giving my official apology for not keeping up with the blog as I intended. There has been so many new exciting things happening at the gallery. I have started booking events for the next two months, interviewing the interns, still so much to do…
I am enjoying the process! Keep creating!

Zentangles to the Show...

Our great night of Zentangle!
I am so pleased with how our first class turned out!!
Thank you girls for all your hard work and all the fun too!
All the hard work is starting to payoff; the gallery looks great. I am proud to say I now have another five artists! New beautiful stained glass; two new jewelers, a phenomenal group of artists! I am so privileged to have them all with me.
I have decided to start the gallery’s own blog:
My hopes of writing about a new artist each day. (did I say that already?)
While I am looking to hire some interns and to go forward from here, the work has truly been hard on my family. The show was wonderful all the artists did great! The gallery was stunning!
I however felt like I was run over by a truck. I stayed in bed all day today, what a week…

My friends Bob Neil and Jim Rickert will be staying on as my advisors.
I have a new great friend named Donnie Schmidt, she does feather painting and pastels! She will be keeping the gallery open on Sunday’s for us.
Her web site is
Thank you for all your support!! I have the best blogger friends!

My new work!

I finally found the cord to the camera! Yeah!
I am posting my new work here for you to see first…
I have worked about 20hours on this drawing… in between moving out of Neverland and into the Gallery… while getting ready for the Connection’s show.
I had grand visions of finishing a lot more work than I did. I now fully understand all your warnings about owning your own business!
My family isn’t speaking to me and that old Murphy ’s Law keeps hanging around my neck! I hope to see you at the gallery show on:
Thursday Night, September 17th between 5-8pm is the
Connections Magazine Artscene Show. There are a total of four artists, and I am one.

I am so excited my first show, sad thing is; that not knowing if the business arrangement would go through, delayed the publicity, it wasn’t done properly…
I still hope all goes well… faith

The Talented Forelli's

Photograph: Chip Forelli

This weekend rocked!
Saturday’s Fireman’s Parade and the Willow River Gallery’s Show (Which I heard was a great success!!) drove site-seers and fans to our gallery too!
Just a little about what has been going on…
A shout out and round of applause to our own Gloria Forelli who sold her photograph titled “The Pasture”!
Her artistic eye for detail and knowledge of the great masters has transcended from her paintings into this new direction with her works in photography.
Truly a talent to watch!!
We love your work and hope to see much more of it!

Her talented husband is Chip Forelli:

His work is at the gallery!! His work is amazing and worth taking the time to stroll through his photography!

Senator Ed Kennedy’s memoir is being released today:
I have been looking forward to a good read!
In honor of him:
The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die.
- Edward "Ted" Kennedy 1932 - 2009
