A sad day in the San Diego studio. :(

Posted on April 17, 2018
It’s a beautiful day here in sunny San Diego, CA but I unfortunately lost a very dedicated and hard working member of the studio family. Keep the good ole’ hair dryer in your thoughts, she simply never let me down and was always there when I needed her to help me dry that paint! The ole’ gal passed away this afternoon at 1:40pm PST in the San Diego, CA studio.
   I knew she had been hurting a little lately so I had decided to give her a couple weeks off. Well, I fired her up this morning and she was humming right along and then suddenly, she threw out some heat and spit her final sparks. She was good to me over the years, almost ten to be exact. I’ll miss her dearly but she will be immortalized in the studio forever. Thank you so much for all your hard work, you’ll be missed hair dryer.
Love,
-monty

Please help support a mural with the students at Zamorano Fine Arts Academy in San Diego, California!

Posted on March 15, 2018

Here’s a few words from Don Masse who is a teacher at Zomarano Fine Arts Academy and has put together a little “Go Fund Me” campaign to help raise funds to purchase paint and supplies for our upcoming collaborative mural with the students that will be permanently painted on a wall at the school in the first week of April. Thanks so much for your support!

Don Masse: “At Zamorano Fine Arts Academy, my curriculum focuses on living artists and one of the amazing things about doing so, is that we can interact with these artists digitally, and in some cases, in person. That has been the case with Monty Montgomery, who was kind enough to do an artist talk with 5th graders earlier in the year and who will be coming back to our school to create a mural with 1st and 5th grade students who created drawings inspired by his work!”

Go Fund Me Link: https://www.gofundme.com/a-mural-with-monty

Don Masse: “The funds I am raising will go towards purchasing the paint needed for the 9’ x 25’ mural he will paint with students. Monty is generously donating a week of his time and creativity, and we need the paint purchases to make this wonderful project happen.

This mural project experience will benefit our whole school community. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for students that collaborate with Monty. The rest of our classes will tour the mural while It is being created to ask questions and observe a professional artist applying the very skills and concepts that they are learning about in art class. It will add beauty and color to our campus that parents and community members can experience anytime they visit our campus. The mural will be inspired by the Southern California desert landscape and it’s theme and Monty’s geometric abstract style will resonate so well with our school community.

This project will be done the first week of April, so we need to secure supplies by the March 25th.

Your support will mean so much to me and our students. I love being able to bring real world artistic opportunities to our students and your assistance will bring this project to life. You will help bring color and joy to the daily lives of our students!”

The Reinventingrid Art Blog feature, “Monty Montgomery – Studio Visit” San Diego, CA

Posted on March 11, 2018
I am very honored to have been chosen as the first Artist featured in Artist Studio Visits” by Ingrid Westlake who is the creator and author behind the “Reinventingrid” Artist Blog. Ingrid approached me about sharing a little of my quiet life in the studio and a few of the interesting moments out on the road with various murals and projects. It has been an amazing experience getting to know her and work together on this project. Ingrid cares so much about the process of ART and the people it comes from. I feel so lucky to now call her a dear friend and collector. I hope you enjoy the interview.

A few words from Ingrid, “My blog is about my constant reinvention, also called living a full life as long as you are prepared to never stop looking. It’s about sharing an aesthetic love of life and how using art as a filter or prism enables me (and hopefully you!) to reach a more grounded state of mind.” -Ingrid Westlake

Posted on December 7, 2017

Biography
 As a child growing up in Kalihi Oahu, his friend stole a book from his older brother the book was called Spray Can Art by Henry Chalfant & James Prigoff it was the first time Aaron experienced NYC graffiti. Characters and Styles by Mode 2, Seen and Dondi White also influenced by popping, breaking and the early hip hop movement Aaron was all about it, it wasn’t later until his early teens he got the true taste of graffiti, while growing up in southern california which was neighborhood driven and about tagging and getting your name up.

It was in vegas where Aaron was introduced to true graffiti, whole productions, heavens, pieces and the re-introduction of the Golden age of hip hop music. It was then Aaron got the itch to design Characters, letters and the early influence of design.

Aaron Martin was born on the island Oahu 1977, Hawaii. Most of his childhood was spent growing up and moving from Southern California to Nevada before finally landing back into Hawaii during his Junior year in high school.

In 1999 a car accident changed everything; this life-threatening experience inspired him to leave the island once again, this time to Seattle, Washington. Inspired by the rain and being indoors, he started playing around with different art mediums again. He then left back to Hawaii with a new perspective,

” Being close to death trapped in metal changed everything. Almost 18 years later but its just like it happened yesterday life’s been crazy and unbelievable I been blessed with the best Family and Homies ever, on top of that I been rocking out full time doing what I love just painting and meeting the coolest people.”

Aaron had his first show in 2002 and has not stopped. Showing in galleries up and down California the east coast, have even showed in shows that have traveled from the U.S. to South East Asia, Germany & South Pacific New Zealand and Australia.

His focal medium is acrylic paintings on wood and canvas. Using minimal colors and detailed character design, these paintings are usually comprised of stressed out emotional pandas. The pandas tend to represent the story of struggle.

“Everyone uses the panda of an icon of something cute and harmless, but I love painting them disgruntled and angry; it takes people by surprise.”

Aaron has painted well over a thousand of them. His characters tend to be somewhat repetitive, even anonymous in some instances, but always full of personality and emotion. Being known to rock the Panda from East to West, it’s just a small piece of what Aarons capable of doing. Besides working with acrylics, he also sews costumes, plush figures, sculpts, and dabbles in graphic design and illustration.

“Angry Woebots was never a name it was a concept of what I created, concept of my art, from the car accident until now, from being in a dark place and coming out of the situation fresh and ready to build, getting slammed into metal actually woke me up. Rocking art was the doorway it’s been nonstop ever since.”

The “Rabbitville Project” | 150 year anniversary celebration of the Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego, CA

Posted on July 5, 2017

 

“DIEGO” | Front center view | Montana Gold aerosol on fiberglass sculpture with UV varnish | 48″ tall | Original permanently featured in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego, California.

I am excited to announce that I’ve been commissioned | selected as one of the 15 Artists to create upon a four foot fiberglass rabbit through the “Rabbitville Project” in San Diego, California and the piece is now complete! “Diego” has a fresh new clear coat and was released to the public at the press conference in the Gaslamp Quarter on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at 10am. “Diego” is now making his way around the Gaslamp Quarter where he will hang with the crowd in various spots before choosing his permanent location to call home. The permanent location will be announced in the coming weeks and you can view various angles of “DIEGO” through “Portfolio” / “Original works” / “2017” on http://www.montymontgomeryart.com

The Gaslamp Quarter Association in conjunction with Downtown Partnership Clean and Safe will collaborate in a 150th anniversary celebration with the installation of 15 fiberglass rabbit statues in the Gaslamp Quarter. 150 years ago, the area that is now the Gaslamp Quarter was jokingly nicknamed “Rabbitville” after its chief inhabitants. The “Rabbitville” installation will honor the pioneering spirit of legendary founder, Alonzo Horton, who transformed Rabbitville into modern San Diego. 15 artists will be commissioned to paint and decorate these unique canvases that will be on display to the public later in 2017.

The Gaslamp Quarter Association is reaching out to corporate patrons to share in the celebration by sponsoring one of the 15 sculptures. Media, and Promotional opportunities are available to these partners and funds raised by this project will help in a new enhanced decorative lighting campaign to go on Fifth Avenue in 2018. Visit the links below for more information. Locations and the completed Rabbit will be released soon! Thanks to Sonya Sparks, Emily Knapp, Jess Amaya, and the Sparks Gallery family, Erin Liddell, and everyone at the Gaslamp Quarter Association ® for the invitation to create for our beautiful city!

The “Fractal #60” solid birch commissioned door is now installed in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Posted on May 7, 2017

The new “Fractal Series” door is now installed in the home of Pete and Beth Akey in Charlottesville, Virginia. “Fractal #60” is solid birch and was the first door that I have ever taken on. I wanted to allow the tones and patterns of the beautiful wood to come through while creating an interesting motion and energy that bounced around inside the shape. Specific color choices were dialed in with the client to insure a vibe to fit the interior of their abode. Here is a photo taken by Pete of “Fractal #60” installed with “Fractal #46” featured from their collection as well.

Work of Art statement: The “Fractal Series” is a series of works that are based on line, shape, energy, and color relationships. For commissions or more information please contact me through the “Contact” page on www.montymontgomeryart.com #montyart

Amazing moments with my folks!

Posted on July 14, 2016

What an amazing visit from my folks! Thanks Mom and Dad for popping on the plane and coming all the way from Virginia! I feel so blessed to have parents that are so loving and supportive. Good times all over San Diego with a little hanging in the South Park studio. It feels like yesterday that I was two years old coloring with my Mom at the kitchen table in the woods of Virginia.

A few words from Chris Chillemi, the owner and creator of “Robots Will Kill”: The Robots Will Kill 15th anniversary show that became a block party. Oh with some live painting, pizza, raffles and good times. Where to start. First thank you to all of the amazing artists. Everyone’s pieces looked amazing and congrats to everyone because one of the only things I heard all night was how great the show looked. Thank you to EVERYONE who came out! I apologize if we didn’t get to speak but between painting the van, talking to people and the amazing time I got a little tied up. Pulling up and seeing a line of people 2 hours before the doors opened was incredibly humbling. Seeing so many people walk around with Robots Will Kill shirts was crazy. This reminds me, yes to everyone who was asking there will be new shirts and hoodies soon. Lots of stuff planned. Thank you to everyone who posted the flier and helped spread the word. One of the best things I heard was “there was no way to miss this, it was one of the most promoted things I’ve every seen on social media”. This means a lot to me. Thank you to everyone one who has supported me and @robotswillkill over the years. Whether it was stopping by the site, uploading pictures, buying something, coming to a show, telling friends etc etc etc. Thank you to everyone who came out early for the bags. Luckily we had great weather. And thank you to everyone who bought a tote bag and took part in the raffles. Thank you to all of the artists over the years who have supported. Again I’m sorry I couldn’t fit everyone in the show. For 20th we’ll rent an airplane hanger. Thank you @lassopizza for all the pizza. People loved it! Thank you to all of the artists who sent in stickers, buttons, paintings etc for the giveaways. Those bags were stuffed to the gills!!! Thank you so much to the guys at @myplasticheart for everything and for always supporting. By far one of the best places in New York. Thank you to my friends and family. You know why. Thank you @zeroproductivity for an awesome flier design. Thank you @rega_army for EVERYTHING!!! Thank you @herb_smith for pushing my artwork and help make RWK what it has become. -Chris Chillemi

Posted on March 28, 2016

After completing the “Nature Series” benches in Rio Blanco, Matagalpa, Nicaragua with three amazing teams of individuals I have now continued on to Atenas, Alajuela, Costa Rica for the next Project. In the moments of travel coming here, I so strongly realized how very blessed I am to have been able to create in Nicaragua with my MOM!

MomandMontyinNicaraguaweb

She is one of the most inspiring, caring, giving, humans I have ever met and I just wanted to take this opportunity to say that I LOVE YOU MOM, and that I am so very proud to be your son and your friend! Thank you for being the beautiful woman you are in so many ways to so many people. You inspire me to be the best I can be everyday, in every way! We were all so lucky to have you with us on the Mission Trip in Nicaragua. Thank you for all you bring to this world! “The quicker you are in attaching verbal or mental labels to things, people or situations, the more shallow and lifeless your reality becomes, and the more deadened you become to reality, the miracle of life that continuously unfolds within and around you. In this way, cleverness may be gained but wisdom is lost and so are joy, love, creativity and aliveness. They are concealed in the still gap between the perception and the interpretation.” -Eckhart Tolle

The "Nature Series" benches are completed in Rio Blanco, Matagalpa, Nicaragua

Posted on March 26, 2016

It’s been an amazing week in Nicaragua with the mission team from Grace Bible Church of Virginia Beach, Virginia on our “Serve and Learn Trip”. We landed in Managua, Matagalpa and joined forces with the “Connect Nicaragua” team. After spending quality time in the community and gathering supplies, we hit the road for the seven hour bus ride into Rio Blanco, Matagalpa and reached our final destination at the “Verbo Rio Blanco” Church. There were so many powerful moments shared through being together, giving to each other, and creating very special memories with the community.

verbochurchgroupphotoweb

We worked with the Verbo Church members and the local children hand painting the artwork on crafted benches. Each bench was designed after taking in the energy and hearing how each teen recognizes God in the Nature that surrounds them. The “Nature Series” benches will be placed in various locations through the community of Rio Blanco for the people to enjoy. Thank you to Chris and Kelly Jordan of Grace Bible Church, The “Connect Nicaragua” crew, and the wonderful people of the Verbo Church. This experience will never be forgotten and we will surely join forces again soon to spread LOVE to all in every way possible. *View all eight benches in “Gallery 2016” on this website.

A JOURNEY that began so many years ago….

Posted on March 10, 2016

As I stand here on this beautiful Downtown Farmville morning I am overwhelmed by the thought that this artistic journey began over 20 years ago sitting in the library around the corner drawing my very first logo for Cilli Original Designs which I launched as a junior at Longwood University . As the sun reflects on the 90′ X 20′ “Warehouse Triptych Mural Project” which was completed in 2014, it’s truly hard to believe how quickly time passes. We must do the best we can to enjoy every moment and share them with all the amazing individuals along the way. Thanks to Randy Edmonson, my former painting instructor at Longwood University, Pam Butler of Mainly Clay , the entire Farmville Downtown Partnership, and the Town of Farmville, Virginia,! I am so honored to still be a part of this wonderful town. It will always be so important to me.

Posted on March 1, 2016

I am very honored and excited to have spoken to the students of San Diego State University on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 from 5:30 to 6:45 about ART and the PATH that it has carried me upon since I was a small child. The evening was was filled with great conversation and lots of learning all around. I look forward to returning to work with the students at SDSU again soon!

Monty with Mixture mural

Artists + Designers In Real Time

*Below is a statement from SDSU professor and Artist David Fobes http://art.sdsu.edu/faculty-members/david-fobes/

“Muralist, Street Artist, Entrepreneur Monty Montgomery will be our speaker on March 1st, 5:30-6:45 GMCS-333 on the SDSU campus.

I met Monty Montgomery when I had asked him to assist on the SDSU Art Benches Project
http://sdsuartbench.blogspot.com/…/beach-bums-monty-montgom….
Monty is one of the most enthusiastic and generous people I have ever met. He is also one of the busiest artists on the planet and I have been trying to arrange him to speak for over a year. (He leaves the next day for a project in Costa Rica!).

His work is a reflection of his love for life and his sympathetic reaction to his immediate environment when working on a project.
Its going to be a fun evening with one of San Diego’s finest .”

*Statement from Monty Montgomery

“My work is constantly based on making connections with my surroundings in nature and visually absorbing every point of attraction and emotion through various moments in public. I mold everyday situations into visual forms that express what I felt at that moment through energies, spontaneous actions, nature’s offerings, and very specific spoken words that I seem to hear a little differently. I enjoy the intensity and calmness within all types of people; even more so, that moment which brings true feelings to the surface. I often channel my energy through shape and color relationships that play a diverse role in relaying something complicated or very simple. I enjoy letting the viewer decide upon how the combinations make them feel.”

The last Saturday morning on the "Right Coast".

Posted on January 9, 2016

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 3 months since I was last at home in San Diego, Ca. I awoke this morning in a beautiful, hidden abode in the hills of Farmville, Virginia and realized this was my last Saturday here on the East Coast for a while. It’s chilly out, raining, and peacefully still. I will miss these moments and remember them fondly.

Many new works flowing out of the San Diego, CA studio.

Posted on October 6, 2015

So refreshing to actually find minutes between projects to spend time in the studio bringing visions to life on various surfaces through multiple tools. I’ve been following up on written “Moments” in my journal which match with taken photographs on my phone. I constantly feel moments in Nature and within my CORE that I simply know will become works of ART… The “Nature Series” and “Core Series” have been developing for years and I am pumped to share the newest additions with you from both series of work. From so many moments felt in Nature to the vibes that rattle my CORE, they are all so very appreciated, they CREATE the PATH!  #alivethroughart #everymomentchangeseverymoment #thenatureseries #thecoreseries

Featured above are: “Moment #13” Montana Gold Spray Paint on Birch Panel 14″ x 14″ x 1.5″& “CORE #5″ Liquitex Acrylic and Montana Gold spray paint on Birch panel 16″ x 16″ x 1.5”.

"The Nature Series" is constantly flowing in many new directions.

Posted on August 25, 2015

It’s always a great feeling to capture moments in your mind and turn them into a visual experience on a surface. “The Nature Series” which kicked off in early 2014 with “Visuals in the Park” has truly become my newest way of taking in nature’s landscapes and relaying them through color, shape, and geometry. Over the last couple years “The Nature Series”  has been constantly evolving in it’s own way and there are many new visions in the works. Nature has always been such an important part of my life and this journey of taking images from nature and turning them into moments such as “Moment #11” and “Moment #12” below, truly allows me to be in that certain moment and relay it to others. Here’s to many many more, “Moments” in Nature.

The JOURNEY continues…

Posted on August 14, 2015

 

Years & Years & Years sitting in this chair at this same table. From town to town, studio to studio, coast to coast, you’ve traveled with me for twenty years. Pencil, brush, or spray paint to the canvas, panel, product, or wall, you’ve been there through so many creative times supporting me along the way. It’s crazy when you step back in a moment and recognize the objects that have been in your life and with you for the longest periods of time, through it all. Thank you table, I seriously don’t know where or what I would be without you. Here’s to the rest of this Artistic Journey together!

New works hitting walls!

Posted on July 16, 2015

There’s nothing quite like being HOME on the East Coast with family and creating at the studio nestled in nature. This past month in Virginia was filled with creative moments all over the state. It was awesome catching up with friends and completing various projects in Virginia Beach, Richmond, Charlottesville, Louisa, Fredericksburg, and Farmville while ending the visit with a birthday celebration on my folks property!  San Diego Studio 2015

Stoked to now be HOME in San Diego, and get back at it on the West Coast! Getting to the final touches on “Nature’s Rays” and “Visuals in the Park #2” which will soon be hitting walls in the area. Various projects in the works & ready to hang my newest piece for the collection from my good buddy Chris of “ROBOTS WILL KILL”. Get to creating peeps!

A little writing at sunrise on the shores of Virginia Beach, Virginia

Virginia Beach Sunrise

Taking time to enjoy a few moments of writing along the shores of Virginia Beach, Virginia. It’s always an awesome feeling to come sit and take in these waters where I was raised. I think back through the years of my childhood and remember so many amazing moments with family and friends, it’s as if I never left. #‎johnmuir‬ ‪#‎nature‬ ‪#‎ocean‬ ‪#‎sunrise‬ ‪#‎virginiabeach‬ ‪#‎virginia‬ ‪#‎loveva‬ ‪#‎writing‬ ‪#‎everymomentchangeseverymoment‬

Nothing like cruising back through "FARM VEGAS"

Posted on July 1, 2015

I made a pit stop through Farmville, Virginia  on this past Sunday to visit with friends, meet with a few spots, and deliver “Reading Between the Lines” for the Virginia Children’s Book Festival. I revisited the “Warehouse Triptych Mural Project” which was done almost exactly a year ago. It’s just truly hard to believe sometimes how quickly time passes. We must do the best we can to enjoy every moment.  Go Get CREATIVE!

Getting a little frame work on with Dad at home in Virginia.

Posted on June 27, 2015

Nothing like waking up on a Saturday morning in VA to the sound of birds chirping and wind whistling through the trees as the sun peaks through to bring in a beautiful day in nature. Spent a little time on the front porch taking in this beautiful place and it’s surroundings while enjoying a little morning coffee with my folks.

woodframewebWhynowframeWEB

Dad and I popped to it and started building a new floating frame for “WHY”, an original work of mine from Mr. Edmonson’s painting class at Longwood University in 1996. It’s hard to believe that almost twenty years have passed since creating this piece. I’ve decided to make it a permanent piece in one of the guest rooms at my parent’s home. It will be fun to re visit these memories every time I return home to VA!

HOLY COW! It’s hot here in Virginia.

Posted on June 22, 2015

Punching through this Virginia humidity and getting at new birch panels, wood blocks, and skate decks in the studio. Being surrounded by ~Nature’s Song~ and the palette of “green” is so powerful. It speaks, asking to be utilized through creating. It feels so nice to be nestled back in these woods of this state where I grew up. I once built forts and played in creeks here, I now use this land and Nature’s offerings to create from. Thank You Nature!

Visiting Ben and Jen in Las Vegas to see "Moment #5" in it’s new Home!

Posted on June 16, 2015

After completing the KREASHUN mural in Las Vegas at the International Licensing EXPO on June 9-11th I was able to roll over and catch up with Ben and Jen at their home outside of the city. “Moment #5” from “The Nature Series” is in their collection. Ben is the son of Randy Edmonson who was my painting instructor at Longwood University. I last saw Ben over 15 years ago when he was 10 years old running around in Bedford Hall at Longwood. Ben is now also in the ARTS as a  Graphic Designer and  I am honored for “Moment #5” to be in his personal collection. It’s so awesome how years pass and “The PATH” continues.

Ben and I with "Moment #5" at his home in Las Vegas, NV

*Read a little about Randy Edmonson through the link below. Mr. Edmonson has retired from Longwood University now and is currently creating beautiful pottery, sculptures, and paintings in his mind blowing Farmville, Virginia based studio. After all these years, I continue to have an awesome friendship with Mr. E! I look forward to soon visiting his studio and creating together once again!

The "Eastern Rays" mural from Longwood University featured as Pat McGee’s new album cover

Posted on May 12, 2015

My longtime friend and former classmate at Longwood College, Pat McGee, has completed his 10th album which is released today! I’m honored to collaborate with @patmcgeeband from an artistic standpoint on this project. Pat is using visuals from the “Eastern Rays” mural in Bedford Hall at Longwood for the cover and packaging of his new album. A few color alterations and a “distressed feel” have been added to the original mural images to bring the classic 70’s flavor into the design. The new album is being printed on vinyl as well as digitally. Pat recorded with his dream musicians, Artists that were on some of the most classic albums of all time. The band of legends includes: on drums- Russ Kunkel, on bass-Leland Sklar, on guitars- Waddy Wachtel, Jeff Pevar & Danny Kortchmar. There are also some amazing special guests including Pat Monahan from Train, John Popper from Blues Traveler, Paul Barrere from Little Feat and more, as well as Pat’s long time band members. This album is a return to Pat’s songwriting routes heavily influenced by 1970’s singer-songwriter/classic rock genre.

Awesome moments is San Francisco, California

Posted on May 10, 2015

After finishing the custom artwork for the Paddle Surfboard project in Placerville, Ca., I decided to cruise on over and visit San Francisco. It was an awesome few days in SF visiting friends, hitting galleries, and just popping around in the city. I made the  journey through “Muir Woods” to connect with that amazing place once again, and camped at “Kirby Cove” campground which has now become one of my favorite spots. The views looking back across the Golden Gate Bridge were so inspiring and I will never forget the moments…. I am so thankful to be on this artistic JOURNEY!

A little *SUNDAY FUNDAY* with the "Nature Series"

Posted on May 4, 2014

•SUNDAY FUNDAY• Popped up with the sun this morning to get rolling on new panels for “The Nature Series”. This entire series kicked off last week with “Moment #1”, which can be viewed in the “Gallery” – 2014. The series is based on patterns, elements, and colors in Nature. Could be a flower, could be moss, could be a butterfly, fluttering through the trees, maybe even something I thought I saw…

Sunday Funday at the Studio in SD,CA.

Combining these natural moments with my emotions, gives me an edge of creating on completely how I feel and what I saw at a certain moment in the lands where I was raised. I can’t really explain a more core feeling in creating. The series will continue until my last days…

Warming back up to the "Left Coast" studio in SD!

Posted on April 18, 2014

Bringing some smaller versions of the •Eastern Rays• mural @longwooduniversity to life on panel here in the studio on the •Left Coast•. Re-visiting through color… #longwooduniversity

Studio photo 2014

I can’t lie…. The brutal winter on the “Right Coast” in Va was fun, but the sunshine in San Diego sure is nice! Feeling good to be back in the studio and creating. Until next time VA! Much LOVE at Ya!

I’ve been in and out of Khaki’s life since the day he picked her up and she will be so missed by many many folks. RIP Khaki, you will always be with us and cherished. We miss you beautiful girl!

Posted on March 8, 2014

The “Authentic Flow” commission 24″ x 36″ x 2″ acrylic on canvas is complete. It felt so nice to get off the road for a bit and settle down in my newest studio space in Va. I reconditioned my drafting table from 2002 that I had stored, built some shelves, and hung photographs and images that I found from my Old Gallery on the Charlottesville, Va downtown Mall which completed the space for permanent creating on the East Coast!

Nothing like creating for the first time again on a table that you spent years on, years ago….. How the moments and memories return! So many more awesome times ahead now in this new space. Thankful.. #alivethroughart #movingforwardkeepingstill #everymomentchangeseverymoment
