It’s nice to be recognized and appreciated for doing what comes naturally. Not to say that getting recognized happens easily with all the noise and access we have to things these days. One person saw this article and asked me, “So who did you know?”
The status quo is “it’s who you know”. No- it’s not actually. The question is, what can you offer and why should anyone care? It is in the being and the action. Like a painting, it’s in the response. If there is something you are inspired or feel called to do, begin and ask questions later.
There is good art here in the East Bay and more than we can possibly hold and tell you about in any one show or newsletter. But it’s here. If you need help finding it, start with your local fine art gallery. Nowadays, these places are gathering spots and labs that will spark your own creativity. Talk to the artists and gallerists and ask a lot of questions. No need to be shy or be intimidated. If you do, you are in the wrong place. It doesn’t have to be scary or lofty. Asking about the art and artists shows your interest and we love that!
We are working on having more contemporary art for collectors and developing more tools for artists. Check back, stop in and become a part of the fabric that makes this place great. You will be richly rewarded!
One recent visitor emailed to let us know,
“Thanks so much for your time. We always enjoy the vivid works in your gallery, the placement which affords them the best possible viewing, and your patience and enthusiasm in answering our questions.”
This was like music to my ears. Thank you.
And Thank you to Diablo Magazine for asking questions and showing interest.
