GRANDON GALLERY: The OPENING!

Our FIRST opening seems to have been a great success. I wish I had been there! I am sure other artists in the show feel the same way. However, we are lucky. In this time of technology, we have instant feedback from far away lands.

Early this morning I got an email with photos from Claude (aka: @Dooko). Here is the text of his first email:

“Sheree,
The Opening was really good, lots of people coming in and out of the Gallery and many positive comments on everyone's Art! Downtown Flagstaff was full of people! In Heritage Square a kids movie was on the outdoor screen, several blocks were crowed with people in and out of other Galleries and Shops, a Huge turnout for Flagstaff Art Walk. In spite of my reservations of the art all on one wall and close together I think it worked out for the better...people were looking at ALL the Art in one area...the numbers were not with sharpie, my bad, but looking through a reflective window that day. Names of all the Artist's was nicely displayed. Here's some pic's..I did take one of Steve with my camera but it didn't take I guess. Steve and John took a bunch of photo's also and you'll probably get those soon. I left around 8:30 and still the town was 'hoppin'.
Dookster”


His second email read:

“Sheree,
The Mayor of Flagstaff came up and introduced herself to me, Sara Presler. I had never met her before, we had a nice convo. She really liked the concept and artwork. It might have been Steve who pointed her my way. Anyway, there were literally hundreds of people in downtown last night.
Dooko”


His third email read:

"Steve was our 'point man' and he enjoyed talking about the show with people he knew, like the Mayor and with that, he attracted many listener's."

These emails made my day!!! THANK YOU STEVE!!!! I am so happy we are off to a great START! Yes, we still haven’t heard from other galleries yet, but let’s take this as a good omen. We still have lots of time to try to make this twitterartshow bird FLY!!!
Here are some photos of the opening. TOO COOL!!!
Thanks Claude!!!!

Yay! Great job, Sheree. It looks great! I was a little worried mine wouldn't get there in time (you never know with crossing the border), so I'm thrilled to see it up there amongst such fine company. Awesome pics!
