Art for the Holidays
There’s a long tradition of art galleries hosting exhibits that cater to the idea of giving art as a Christmas/Holiday gift. It certainly provides an opportunity to get a one-of-a-kind gift for someone that doesn’t “need” anything. I will have some work in one of those such shows, and it opens tomorrow. It’s “Black Friday” today, and I think that it’s Small Business Saturday for the show’s opening… and, I think that the gallery really only has one employee… the owner. Modfellows Art & Design Gallery is a new endeavor in town, trying to make a go in a very tough market. Will the folks show up to shop for art??? There’s never any telling. We’ll do our part to make it a fun show and reception, and we can only hope for the best.
Today, me and my girls began our research into tree farms by visiting a Christmas tree farm and studying the setup. Mental notes were taken, but we didn’t leave with a tree… It felt like dipping our toes into the plan for our retirement project.
