“Art is what we call the thing the artist does. It’s not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human. Art is not in the eye of the beholder. It’s in the soul of the artist.” -Seth Godin
This weekend is the 42nd Annual Blue Ridge Art’s Festival held in downtown Blue Ridge – right down the street from my gallery – High Country Art. I took a couple new pieces to the gallery this morning. Blue Ridge is about 1 1/2 hours north of Atlanta – a quaint little mountain town full of interesting shops and restaurants. I have been with this gallery since 2013. It’s a fabulous gallery and I sell quite a bit of work there and my work is in the window for this festival weekend!
And here are a couple of shots of my work hanging in the gallery. Cheryl, the gallery owner, also sells by phone and ships directly to you. The gallery info is under the tab above – ‘Gallery Representation.’
“I love the process of making an image inspired by story, feeling, imagination and dream. Pictures are a form of communication and even though I am fairly competent with words, images speak a mysterious language that doesn’t leave a single thing out – a language heard by the heart.” -Susan Sorrel Hill
