My work displayed at the Gallery 225

I’ve been holding it in since the end of 2010, but it’s time to finally announce a nice little milestone for me.

During one of my booths I did down at the Gilbert Farmer’s Market right before Christmas, I was told that a lady named Mary Ellen was interested in my work and that she ran a gallery across the street in historic downtown Gilbert.

I walked over there, met her and she told me to ring her back in January or February when things slowed down.

Well, the rest, as they say, is history.

Last weekend I delivered 18 prints to the Gallery 225 and 8 of them are hanging on the wall, which you can see in the photo at the bottom of this post. I printed a few in metallic, there are mostly 12x18s but a couple of big 20x30s. The unframed prints are in the bin below the hanging art.

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this. I did a showing at First Friday last year, but this is the first time I’ve had anything for sale in an actual art gallery. The idea that someone liked my work enough to ask me to be a part of their gallery is incredibly humbling and absolutely a confirmation about what I’m doing.

The work will hang up there for at least four months (probably a lot longer) and hopefully we’ll sell enough that we’ll rotate in some new prints!

Special thanks to Jessa Koppenhofer who runs the Gilbert Farmer’s Market for making the connection. Can’t thank you enough for everything you do for the people at your market.

And of course, thanks to Mary Ellen for loving my work enough to have it in your awesome gallery!

So if you live on that side of town (or don’t), go check it out! The Gallery 225 is right across the street from Liberty Market and The Farm.
