Hi fellow artists! This is my first attempt at blogging – please bear with me while I fill you in on the latest here at Art Central!
First of all, we had a great opening reception for Art After Dark this past Friday evening – Many thanks to our gallery artists for their terrific work, to Castoro Cellars for pouring their fantastic wine, and to all the great folks who came and enjoyed the evening with us!
This show will be up until March 31st. Please come and check it out – it is SUPERB!
The art supplies are still coming in – some recent arrivals which have been HIGHLY anticipated are the Schminke and Unison pastels – still don’t have a rack for the Schminke’s, but hopefully we’ll see it by the end of the month. In the meantime, we’ve got them in pastel boxes – better than not having them at all, right?! And we got in the Wallis pastel papers, in sheets and pads, to use them on. The museum grade was backordered… but when it comes in, I’ll be sure to let you know!
Got in some more stuff for kids, not as much as I’d like, though! I love glittery shiny things – I must have been a magpie in a previous life… but I’m trying to be patient, and not go totally crazy each time I see something sparkly. Just wait until they let me loose at the Art Materials Trade show next month – WATCH OUT!
I’m salivating, waiting for the Caran D’ache watercolor crayons to come in – any day now…… also waiting for a shipment of the archival sleeves – I ordered a handful of basic sizes, up to 24×36, hopefully they’ll be in today or tomorrow.
I’m going to try to stay on top of this blog stuff, keep y’all informed – let me know how I’m doing, ok?
Til next time..! etty
