Day Trip to the Zoo

Ballet Folkloric Imagenes Mexicanas

Here's one of the really cool things about art; it's everywhere. Our daughter and grandson were visiting from Seattle couple of weeks back and we all thought "what a great day for a trip to the Zoo". Low and behold it was almost Cinco de Mayo and this wonderful troup of folk dancers were performing. We stood mesmerized for more than 20 minutes and our grandson Max was positively transfixed. The men and women were beautiful in both their costumes and spirit. The traditional Mexican music was loud and empowering. Thanks to the Toledo Zoo for such a great and unexpected time. By the way if you've not visited the zoo recently I highly recommend it, we had a blast, love the polar bears!

The Response to Susan Morosky's Art

I'm always interested by people's reactions to new art and artists at the gallery. It's easy to see why people are responding so well to the new works by Susan Morosky in the May and June exhibit. The strong brush strokes and bright colors are a welcome change from the long, gray winter. Most are initially struck by the abstrat qualities of the paintings but slowly see the loose interpretation of landscapes. We are pleased at the response Susan has received at the gallery and look forward to the next series of work she'll produce.

Artists have also responded to Susan's work. Karen Roderick Lingeman, a ceramics artist, traded her natural earth tones for bright yellows and blues in her latest work showing at the gallery. It's great to see the interaction people have with the various artists and works at the gallery.

I encourage everyone to sign up for the e-newsletter we've started at the gallery. We are planning great events for the summer and fall and want everyone to stay informed. We will also include updates on new work to the gallery and specials on framing.

Remembering Rauschenberg

Robert Rauschenberg discussing the evolution of "Erased De Kooning" in this wonderful clip. One of the true American titans of contemporary pop art passed away this week. Always one of my personal favorites, I was surprised how much his passing affected me.
