Florida Artists Gallery has moved to their new location at 8219 East Orange Avenue in the historic Knight House in Floral City. The gallery will open this coming Wednesday, February 1st, a white rabbit day. Later in the month we'll have grand opening. The house and adjacent buildings sit on over an acre. The grounds are wonderful with huge shade trees, a brick drive, and beautiful gardens.
I took this opportunity to obtain a different display for my pottery. I found this rather garish brass finished wall unit with glass shelves at a local used furniture store. When I paid for the unit I asked "Will you take any less for it?" and I received ten percent off. It doesn't hurt to ask. I purchased some textured brown spray paint and Gary painted the brass portions for me.
The bottom didn't have a glass shelf so I got some luan plywood and cut it to fit the lower shelf section. After the paint dried I brought it in the house and set it up and arrange my pottery. I took a photo so I can print it out and take it with me to the gallery so I can repeat the display there. What do you think? If you see something which could be displayed in more appealing way, please let me know. I'll be leaving early in the morning to take the display and more work. At the top center section I can hang a small sign with my name.
Here's a photo of the new gallery location in Floral City which I copied from the newspaper story. There will be three rooms for art, a separate classroom, a tea room in the rear, and a frame shop in the garage. We hope to entice someone to start an herb or perennial nursery in the green house and adjacent building at the rear of the property. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
