browsing in sweet artsy space
"We can support our local arts organizations, galleries, and artists through participation. Think about buying locally. Not only does this connect us to our community, it is an investment in our community, which will ultimately benefit us all. Buy Locally!" (quote taken from a local Gallery Guide)
this afternoon we headed out on the town to check out funky boutiques and gallery shops downtown. it is such a good feeling to walk into creative space. my sister lives in a part of town that has a lot of that good creative energy so we found our way into a few amazing places. it was a nice way to support local artists while finding unique treasures for Christmas.
hand-blown glass, metalwork, pottery, jewelry, paintings, clothing, it's inspiring and stimulating to browse in such space. i'm off to bed with vivid swirling colors and textures painting happy dreams~
