Our First Official Kid's art show!!!

Our initial session of kid's art classes just finished and we had our very first childrens's art gallery showing today!  Very exciting.  The kids were nervous and excited to show off their amazing pieces of art and explained their process and the mediums used to all the guests.  It was a very proud moment for both the kids and the teachers!

Grand Opening!!

Thanks to everyone who attended our Grand Opening Celebration! We had a blast!

Installing Lighting

 

Every gallery space needs great lighting. We spent the weekend installing lighting tracks, and  we love the results!

We owe a BIG THANKS to Dan Devine, for researching and installing our lighting.  Here are some in-progress photos of the project.

Choosing a Name

Choosing a name takes much longer than you'd think!  When we couldn't agree on one after a week, we went through a top 10, veto, and vote process. 

Gray Sky was the winner!
