Been around for a while. Take a look at the gallery. You might like something. I have an Associates in Fine Arts.

* My favs, watches, and llamas are random.

Interests
I went to a local gallery opening. I decided to take notes and maybe learn something. Here are the highlights.

Gallery Description

The ceiling is painted matte black and the walls are painted white. All the other walls are red brick. There is some exposed pipes but it is also painted black. A black radiator is connected to the pipes. The wooden floor is antique. There are two tracks for the art lights to be mounted on. The hours of operations is posted on the front door which also has an electric door bell. Business cards are stacked near the main desk There is no seating arrangement. Probably no public bathroom.

Gallery Layout

The center has display easels.  The main desk is in the back. A small wall separates the gallery from the studio space. The room has a narrow open floor space.  The radiator and a staircase break the flow of the room. On both sides of the front door are display windows. All of the plugs are one wall.

Art/Artists

Everything is labeled with an alpha-numeric system. It is the artist's initial and the number of the piece. No piece of art is untitled. Smaller pieces and labels are thumb tacked to the wall. Some art is labeled with a recycled material tag. There are no photo prints of any kind. It is all paintings. There was no sign prohibiting flash photography of artwork. Hardly any of the paintings had a pixnit. There are please do not touch signs. The labels are laminated, white with black borders. 
The wall next to the staircase has frame pictures of the artists and short biographies. 

Miscellaneous 

There was a food table in the center of the room. Live music played the whole night. The Lofty Roots name is completely random. There are no comment cards to provide feedback to the artists. It opened in January. The register is a point of sale tablet for credit cards. Fresh cut flowers in a vase on a shelf. Large paintings are wrapped in old rags when sold.
