Getting Ready For Art Ramble

We are so happy to be a part of the Art Ramble this year! The more galleries we have in the area, the more support we get from the community and the more support we can give to each other. Sherry Turner has taken the lead for Art of Oconee in organizing this event and is responsible for coordinating advertising, demonstration schedules, food and drink, and a host of other details that will make this 2 day event a blast for everyone who experiences it!

Speaking of demos, we will have four of our artists painting in the gallery on Friday and Saturday. Gail Vail will be painting in oil, as will Cathy McIntire. It will be great to get a glimpse of the process of oil painting in person. David Siffert will give us all an idea of what gouache (pronounced gwash) is all about, and Kendall Boggs will be creating one of her Angels on canvas. Find out how all that texture gets on the canvas!

The gallery is full of gorgeous paintings, and we have brought in lots of smaller sizes, matted prints and originals, and even greeting cards to accomodate every budget. Kelly Clower and Ellen Cowne have both been busy creating gorgeous new jewelry pieces, and Mike Johnson has been working extra hours to keep his wood turnings in the galleries. His jewelry boxes get snapped up fast!

Gail Vail's book, Seasons on Lake Oconee has been printed and is currently available at the gallery. Seven of our artists are included in the book: Kendall Boggs, Shannon Candler, Nan McGarity, Cathy McIntire, David Siffert, Sherry Turner, and of course, Gail Vail. Get your copy autographed by one (or all!) during the Ramble, since most of us will be at the gallery.
