The Big announcement...

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about my future with the gallery. I have decided with a heavy heart to close up shop. I am at a place where I want to concentrate on my own artwork, and not be bogged down with all the other activities of running a store front. This decision is not an easy one- I love my shop. I will be running things as usual until the end of June. After that, you can find me, and a lot of the local artists I represent at the Ithaca Farmers' Market. I want to say THANKS to all my fabulous artisans that have stuck by me even when sales were less than great! I also want to say THANKS to Jodi who gave me a location and freedom to do "my thing" with the space. I have enjoyed working next to you. So, there it is, in writing. Now on with future plans...

I want to thank you for all the encouragement to take my photography to a new level. I'm really going to miss your shop. I've enjoyed coming in and seeing all the work of the local artists. It's a special place.

At the same time, I wish you well on your own work. You're a great artist, and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Sad! But exciting that you can have time again for making your own work. Thanks for hosting my cards and art in your beautiful spaces over the last few years.

I am sad but totally understand the time it takes to run a business ~ and business stuff has to happen which means less time for art and creativity... I know that whatever you path, you will be successful, because your you!! Love Love Love, Me

p.s. does this mean that you'll have time to take some walks???
