The small talk Gallery in Wells, B.C. is now up and running full bore. People are coming in to look and even buy some of the work. The official opening is on July 12. It will be shared with Claire Kudjundzic and Bill Horne at Amazing Space Gallery. Rumour has it Island Mountain Arts Gallery is also going to be open.
There is an assistant here named Kathy Landry, who is an amazing quilter. She has previously run Mrs. Neat's which was a sewing store in Barkerville. Her experience in running a shop has been very helpful.
The first show up is "Unearthed". It has work from my last two shows and includes some new work as well.
The line-up of other artists includes Tina Ozols, Laurie Landry, Shirley Chisholm, Kathleen Landry, Caroline Anders, Gregg Steffensen, Paula Scott and Corey Hardeman. Work by Robert Klein and Bill Horne are expected soon. There will be knitting by local crafter and alderwoman Virginia Wilkins. Arlee Barr's beautiful stitchings have just arrived.
This is going to be the best summer yet. Once the weather decides to improve.
