Our doors have been open for less than a year but with the arrival of January it truly feels like a new year, both literally and figuratively. We are looking forward to 2010.
It is also a time for reflection and looking back at our first (9 month) year. New businesses have tons of things to do to get started and we certainly felt the push to get it all done. Of course, having 14 capable and talented owners definitely increases the expertise available and lowers the work load for all of us.
Because of our efforts, Art of Oconee is becoming a familiar name in the area. The gallery always looks great, with a variety of art mediums and styles displayed well in a friendly environment. We have strived to keep the gallery looking neat and organized so visitors can focus on the art.
Most of our visitors gladly sign the guest book and look forward to hearing from us about future events. Art lovers in the area are becoming more familiar with Art of Oconee artists, by name and by their art.
