Into the Blue Little Birds

It is always a challenge to present  window displays  at Blue Whole Art Gallery which include new elements or creative projects.  Hanging the birds from their drift wood stick was a strikingly fun  presentation.  Thanks to excellent help from other gallery members, the windows for May are a tribute to what a cooperative gallery can do.
       Coop galleries require a lot of commitment of time and energy to present their artist's work, in return for which friendships,  inspiration
, encouragement  and creative feed back are our rewards.
