While I was visiting Ciel Gallery where my show is hanging, I made a purchase. A museum charges admission. A gallery lets you browse for free and depends on purchases to keep their doors open.
I was impressed with the nice jewelry pouch holding my purchase. It will be handy when I travel next time.
There are 5 partners in Ciel Gallery with a variety of products available. Some of them do commission work also. If you have enjoyed a visit to a gallery lately, tell your friends about it. If you know of an office that is being redecorated or a friend needing fresh new art for their walls, check out Ciel Gallery in Charlotte, NC and all of the neighboring galleries. Of course the featured artists would like sales too, to cover the costs of shipping, hanging, and insurance to produce their month long shows. Here is a link to the current show (mine). You can check out my posts about the gallery if you go to my label list (right sidebar) and click on NC. The photos on the website and my blog were taken different times of the day so you can see them in all different kinds of lighting, some natural daylight, some artificial lighting.
Also while there check out my daughter's studio space. It is a dream studio and you can see her works in progress as well as items she sells.
