Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
It's Officially Official!
We bring you this report from the desk of the newest gallery owner in Carrollton, KY. A report of a lease signing has been verified and Main St., Carrollton, KY will now become home to River Run Gallery and Fun Art Studio.
Owner, Sharon Graves, likes "fun art" better than "fine art", and she hopes you will become familiar with the new business and all it will have to offer.
Graves is a prolific painter and said her home studio has become too full of the art she produces and needs a permanent place to display it. She is also offering a place for other local artists to display their art for sale. If you are one of those artists, a painter, photographer, jeweler, potter, fiber artist, basket weaver, etc., please contact her for details of how you too can have a seat at the table, or on the wall, or where ever.
Group, as well as individual classes will be held during the week. Currently, Graves is teaching adult group classes on Tuesday night at News Auction Barn on Hwy 227 in Carrollton. So far there has been much "fun art" produced and "happy times" had. Please contact Graves for further information of these classes.
Graves will also be moving her private studio to the upstairs confines of the new enterprise, so if you see a strange glow coming from the upstairs window, it is not the ghost of unfulfilled artists clanking their chains. It's just Sharon getting in some paint time.

We are told the new business will not open until early July, but you will be informed of the progress of the gallery/studio as it, well, progresses.

The fully supportive spouse waves amiably as he asks, "Does this mean all that stuff downstairs is going to be moved out?" One can only hope.
Seriously, if you're interested in participating in the new gallery space, or if you would like to take classes, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you all kinds of info.
Also, River Run Gallery and Fun Art Studio will have the full complement of blog, website, facebook page, pinterest page, etc., etc. So if you could please share those as they come on board that would be a great help.
For now, I must be filling out and filing all sorts of forms, getting inspections, licenses, and all sorts of things, just so you can paint or buy a piece of art. Wish me luck.
