Each year, Thanksgiving signals the start of the holiday season and we pause before the rush of events and celebrations to think of all we have to be thankful for. All of us at Blue Rain Gallery recognize and appreciate the fullness of our relationships with each of you, our collectors and artists, everyone who visits and shares our pleasure in the joy that art brings to our lives.
When one of our artists brings in new work, we are as excited as he or she is-we get to experience and discuss with them their ideas, the development of a theme, what inspired them to put in hours of dedication to make by hand something that never existed before. And then we get to share those details and the beauty of the finished piece with those of you who fill your homes and your lives with the results of their labor. There can hardly be a better way to spend our days!
We often read these days that experiences make a longer-lasting gift than “things.” And that’s the beauty of giving art during the holidays. Opening a beautifully wrapped present to discover a finely crafted work of art not only makes the moment special, but it is truly the gift that is also an experience, giving pleasure for years to come.
Between now and the end of the year, we expect to have new work from many of your favorite artists. Stop in to experience the beauty and warm up with a cup of hot cider, a staff favorite! We look forward to hearing from you or seeing you during the holidays.
Wishing you and yours well,
Your friends at Blue Rain Gallery
