We had a great time last night at the Gallery Walk in Brevard.  Since we have pieces in the 'Art Unleashed' - Art About Animals exhibit we attended the artists' reception, along with Bella, our Morkie puppy. (Morkie = Maltese + Yorkie).  While we were out we wanted to browse the numerous art galleries in downtown Brevard.  We were a little skiddish at first about walking into the fancy galleries with Bella, but we discovered that Brevard is surprisingly dog friendly.  Each time we entered a gallery, we were welcomed with oooohs and aaaaahs and occasionally a dog biscuit.  As a Brevard native, you would think I would be familiar with the goings on of downtown Brevard.  I am regretful to say that I have not spent a lot of time visiting the shops or attending the festivals in Brevard.  I always saw downtown as more of a tourist attraction and usually tried to avoid the area if at all possible.  I will definately be spending more time exploring downtown Brevard and appreciating all of the wonderful culture our little town is so full of.

This area is rich in artists with great talents.  The mountains of North Carolina are full of so much natural beauty; from our abundance of waterfalls, to our magnificent mountain views and our spectacular sunsets, it is to be expected that artists of all sorts would find inspiration here.  I was actually a little caught off guard at the beauty I saw just walking through downtown.  Brevard has so much history and character that you can even find wonder in the seemingly ordinary.  Last night I did just that... look below to see pictures of my discovery.

I want to say a special thanks to my Mom & Dad, Kell & Jami, and Melanie & Wesley for coming by last night and supporting us at the art show.  We really appreciate you guys!

Until next time...

So as luck would have it... we ended up getting to put some of our work in the 'Art Unleashed' Art About Animals exhibit at the TC Arts Council after all!  The exhibit is open Monday - Friday from 10 to 4 and runs thru June 5.  We are planning to attend the Artists' Reception on Friday, May 22 from 6 - 9 pm at the TC Arts building in Brevard.  That Friday is also Brevard's 4th Friday Gallery Walk so there will be a lot of interesting stuff going on.  Come see us and our work in person if you can!

Sadly we did not get to enter the 'Art Unleashed' Art About Animals exhibit at the TC Arts Council as we had planned.  We had a death in the family last week so we have been a little pre-occupied.  We do plan on trying to attend the Artists' Reception on Friday, May 22 around 6:00 if anyone wants to come mingle with us and meet our new puppy, Bella.  Take a look at some pictures of Bella on our About Us page.

Another new development we are excited about is our involvement for the first time in the Cashiers Valley Spring Fling Saturday & Sunday, June 13th & 14th.  We are already working on lots of new pieces to take to this event.  More details on this to come...
