Off the Bay Gallery and Gifts opened this weekend in Deale, Maryland, upstairs in the South County Cafe. This is a soft opening. The grand opening will be on May 4th (a Friday evening from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.) where you can meet the artists. Wine and cheese will be served, and it will be a great opportunity to talk to the artists, and view some great art.
The gallery has gifts and cards for sale as well. I love how clean and uncluttered it feels. I know it is going to do well. In addition, there are a mix of artists, and there aren't too many of any type of medium (photography, painters, etc.)
This is the room where all of the fine art painters have their work, as well as some jewelry and other gifts. In the coming weeks, I will get some better photos of what the gallery has available for sale, and hopefully entice some local (and not so local) residents to come out and pay us a visit.
You can "like" the gallery on Facebook here, and receive updates on all of the happenings at the Off the Bay Gallery and Gifts.
Currently, the gallery is open Fridays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
This piece which was printed on canvas at 20"x24"actually sold on Saturday:
A great start. I took this photo on black and white film, processed it in the darkroom, and when I got my perfect print, scanned it into my computer at 600 dpi, and had it printed on canvas. This same canvas piece also sold at the December Muddy Creek Artists Guild show.
Today also marks the start of documenting A Week in the Life with Ali Edwards. I don't know how much I'm going to invest in the project this year. I did an in-depth Week in the Life at Camp Kathy last year when I had my two nieces for the week, and documented our visit in words and photos. My goal was to give each of my nieces a book full of photos and words, but that hasn't happened. But it is something I want to give each of them as a momento of that time in our lives.
This year, I think I'm going to go more this route for my week in the life. Just a few photos from each day, journaling and incorporate it into my Project Life Album.
That sounds like a plan.
