Tim and I grabbed Jenn last night and went to go see an art opening – three friends of ours (actually, I think Jenn knew the woman who made the amazing wooden tables, so that makes four) were in one art opening, and how often does that happen?! OK, in Gainesville, pretty often. But still!
Those tables were amazeballs.
A lot of people were crowding around a piece by Leslie that I really wanted to get a picture of for Tim’s dad, who as a blacksmith, would appreciate it.
Cindy’s work is always popular.
Hah! I finally got a picture of Leslie’s big piece (she also had a Christmas Tree outside but it was too dark to get a good picture of it). On this piece above, the raindrops also move!
If I hadn’t just dropped money on Christmas gifts that very morning, this lovely little box would have come home with me. The wood was so soft and lovely!
Also, how did I not get Erin’s work in any of my pictures?! Gah. Terrible friend.
Anyway… it was a good crowd, and our friends were smiling the whole time. It’s important to support small pop-up galleries like this just as much as it is big galleries and museums… maybe even more important because it’s grassroots and indie. Go out and support some artists today!
