You know warm weather has returned when local art walks resume after a winter hiatus. After a winter that can only be described as miserable, I'm ready to go stroll around the Marietta Square this coming Friday evening to look at art. And of course 2Rules Gallery at 85 Church St. will be my number one stop since they represent me!
I popped in at 2Rules the other day and found owner Helen busily arranging a slew of new offerings. The gallery is featuring lots of new artists with lots of fantastic art in all media. Looking for a special gift for newlyweds, Mother's Day, Father's Day or the graduate? You can't go wrong giving an original painting, or one of a kind piece of pottery, jewelry, fiber art, or decor item. How much more imaginative and thoughtful those items are than tired old standbys like flowers, chocolates, toasters or ties! You don't have to be a Rockefeller to afford originals, either. There's plenty to choose from for less than $100 at 2Rules and other art venues all within a couple of blocks.
Anyway, I hope to see you at the Marietta First Friday Art Walk this week. Come out and stroll the many shops and galleries, sip some wine and have some fun. It's a party that gets bigger and more exciting every year!
