Change of Artwork at Goose Creek Gallery in Bedford

Hello Friends,  Yesterday, Judy and Mary Anne changed the art work hanging at Goose Creek Gallery and Frame Shop in Bedford, Va.  We all love this gallery and all the work they do.

Their Art Walk/Stroll is on the 2nd Friday in every month so it is this Friday, tomorrow, the 13th.

It is always a great time to visit and see the new works of art.

Hope to see you there.

First Meeting of 2017 - for Workshop Plans

Hello Good Friends,  We hope 2017 is treating you well thus far.  We don't have any complaints thus far.
We had a pleasant pre-snow meeting this morning.  I saw trucks on I81 with signs saying "PRE TREATMENT IN PROGRESS".  VDOT is on the defensive this time.  And since people in this area haven't learned to drive in bad weather, GOOD on you VDOT.

We are making plans and checking systems for workshops coming up later this year.  And we know they will be fun because we are well prepared.

We will be letting you in on the fun and festivities and you can get the info first, if you sign up for our NEWSLETTERS.
It is very easy and quick to sign up.  You need to click on the post title up top so you can see our blog in your browser.  Then just click on the sign up form for the newsletter.

Hello Friends,  Would you like to be on the grounds of the picture above?
I think it would be a great place to 'Ring in the New Year' for most.

But since we enjoy the beauty from my own back yard, I think we would choose this view of the Milky Way.

Could be because we are artists and we enjoy nature.
We hope to see more of you out there enjoying nature this coming year.
It would be a great place to stretch your wings and fling your paint!!

Happy New Year

Hello Friends,  Last post about 2016 favorites !   Sue Furrow was torn between the exhibit at the Arts Depot in Abingdon and the exhibits we have at the GOOSE CREEK GALLERY that change every 2 months.

The show in Abingdon was a real treasure but it is hard to bet the ongoing support of Patrick and Mitchell at Goose Creek in Bedford, Va.

We thank them all and encourage you to visit these fine establishments during our NEW 2017, that will show it's face in just a few more days.

Thank you for your support and for keeping up with our passions.

Hello Friends,  Todays memories are shared by Mary Anne Meador.  She says "Goose Creek is my favorite home away from home.  Not only enjoying the displaying of my art with the DLP's but also to be inspired by other artists.
All of us DLP's share her sentiments and love the owners, Patrick and Mitchell.

Visit Mary Anne's blog HERE.

A few more posts of fav's left for 2016.

Hello Friends,  Hope your Holiday plans are going well.  We are still sharing some favorite memories from 2016

Bonnie Mason says, "My favorite art show memory is when I looked up and saw my DLP friends walking in the door at 2nd Helpings for the reception of my solo show last summer. It really means a lot when your friends show up for a reception!"

And if you are an artist, you know what it means.  You are going to be glad if you visit Bonnie's website HERE.

A couple more to go before the end of 2016.

So glad to know you stopped by to read about our thoughts.
