Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County Awards

On October 18, the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County presented their 2010 Executive's Awards, which we have supplied them for some time now.  Megan sent over some great pictures:

I think the awards we make look really great and it's a shame more people don't realize that we offer them!

The Howard Avenue Arts Incubator

I'd like to take a moment to introduce you to a new undertaking of Gary's that may be of interest to any of you who are local.  Gary is leading an effort to create an arts community here in Kensington, MD.  By creating the Howard Avenue Arts Incubator, he hopes to foster creative works and community, using art as a catalyst for even more.  There are a lot of interesting prospects with this project and I invite you to take a look at the website and add your name to the email list there.  The plan is to have a kick-off festival December 12th, 2010.

In preparation, there has been a lot of renovation going on at the studio as the downstairs gets a makeover and the newly acquired area upstairs is being rebuilt into a gallery.

This wall is soon to be history.

The wall is gone, as is a good portion of the old floor.

You can't really see them in this picture, but in addition to the new purple tiled floor, we built a couple of great walk-in closets that will really help to declutter!

The newly redone kitchen area is sure to get a lot of use!

Headed up stairs.  Once it's refinished, this wall above the landing will be a great place to display artwork!

Welcome to the third floor.

It's still very much under construction, but you can see that this can become a really great gallery space.  A few of Gary's larger pieces were set up as examples for a meeting this past weekend and we had a local artist in to symbolically hang the first artwork on the wall. 

If you're interested in getting involved in classes or gallery exhibitions, or to learn more about all the cool ideas Gary has for this project, give us a call at 301.493.5577!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We would like to extend our support and encouragement to those who are fighting or have beaten this disease and our sympathy to those who have lost loved ones to it. We have quite a few groups participating this year in our FREE Glass Ribbon activity to grow community, support, awareness, and funds for those who have had their lives touched by breast cancer, which is wonderful!  Thank you to all those who are participating this month and beyond!  Visit www.glassribbon.com to learn more about what we are doing to help with this cause and how you can get involved.
