This has been a strange week for me. I was unable to attend the the Fr8s, opening. A first that I do not want to repeat. What I have "affectionately" dubbed my Mystery Bug came back in full force for 10 days. I took a PhD in blood tests. And challenged the x-ray technician to find my lungs. End result, I am healthy. Spiked fevers and sever joint/muscle pain remain a mystery. Feeling better until the next bout.
While I spent MANY hours listening to pod casts, I managed to startle The Gallery Dog and ended up with a terrific shiner. (If you are on FaceBook, you will see the photo.) I now know what it means to "see stars".
Wonderful friends stepped in and put on a very good opening reception. Murad's work continues to receive daily inquiries. And the weather is PERFECT! Warm beach days; breezy evenings for dining alfresco. I have tried to get out for a bit whenever possible, and this evening was a wonderful 4 hour evening in front of Fuel. Just my kind of summer.
It is time to gear up for the fall gallery season. The schedule has been set so no surprises there. I mentioned listening to hours of pod casts. Most were about Social Media Marketing. This is the world of the 30 year olds that I was introduced to at The World Domination Summit. The enthusiasm and ideas for reaching out to new audiences is incredible!! I am still trying to figure out how to adapt a fine art gallery to the system. It will take a bit to teach this old dog some new tricks.
Galleries are NOT major money makers. Galleries are for passionate people. Owners, artists and collectors. But I have been able to really focus on MY passion for Lyceum. BEAUTY and INSPIRATION.
I will always exhibit work that I think is BEAUTIFUL. It may not be cutting edge or get reviews in the NY Times, but it will be something that I love to look at for hours and years on end.
I will always feature artists and events that I find INSPIRATIONAL. I want to feel energized and blown away by the talent and creativity that I bring to you.
If you are looking for the off-beat, mind bending, latest "in" theme in visual arts, Lyceum Gallery may not be the place for you.
If you are looking for beautiful art work, created by master artists, don't miss Lyceum Gallery. Through the fall, the exhibits will be evolving with oils in the style of the Old Masters, photography unsurpassed in the community, paintings that make the light dance, and our SO popular steam punk clocks created from beautiful vintage finds.AND our Art and Jazz Nights return!
I love the dog days of summer and look forward to a colorful autumn.
