I guess I’m getting less-driven to update the blog by the end of every month. Seems something else needed my attention as April ended? It’s all okay; no one’s life is dependent on this blog updating monthly, thank goodness!

Late March 30, 2023

Here is the art I know passed through the gallery since the last blog update:

May started with some colorful art available. Hope YOU add some fun stuff to the gallery for others to take, and that YOU take some art home to enjoy in the coming weeks!

I’ve observed people walking by without even glancing at the gallery and wondered why. When I asked if they’d ever taken anything from the gallery, I learned many of them assumed it was for books!! So, new signs went up:

Action seemed to pick up 🙂

These are items photographed before they went to someone’s home for appreciation:

All of a sudden, the gallery was EMPTY for a couple days!!

After a post on instagram, or coincidentally,

an unknown artist loaded the space with watercolors!!

All’s well that ends well.

We’ll head into April for some new creative surprises.

Thank you all.

January ended with a lone turtle in the gallery, so it was filled with back stock donations and February began with a full gallery:

Gallery on February 1, 2023

Here is the art that passed through the gallery this month:

Tomorrow is March 1st. We’ll see what contributions come into the gallery. We could definitely use more people to leave art for others!!

Looks like it’ll be an early Spring!

There’s been a lot of rain this month with colder weather, and gallery activity has slowed down.

Here are the items that have passed through the gallery:

On the last day of the month, this turtle was all alone in the gallery!

At peace with the process.

(It’s been two years. I’m seriously considering closing the gallery and giving it to a friend who would like it by her house in Raleigh.)

How does a month go by so quickly??!? Time to post pictures of the known art that’s passed through the gallery this month:

The year ends with a rainy day and a couple items that have been in the gallery all month. I find it surprising the COOL DOG is still there with the cheerful ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy!’ You never know!

May 2023 be full of creativity, generosity, and SHARING!

May it be so.

It was a busy month with family, and my attention to the gallery was intermittent, at best. There were times the gallery was almost empty, waiting for the next creative to share, but an unknown artist donated a bunch of fun watercolors which were taken by passing patrons.

End of October

This is the art I know moved through the gallery during November:

A rainy morning on November 30th…

The rain gauge had 2.8 inches this morning but now the sky is clearing and the sun is shining. All the better to take some art for yourself and/or to offer some art for the next lucky patron!!

As always, GRATITUDE!!

October 7, 2022

The gallery started out a bit sparse in early October, with space for new contributions from local creatives and generous souls. Sure enough, before long, there was a spat of givers and takers which is a pleasure to behold.

Here are photos of artwork that passed through the gallery this month:

The gallery will be emptied for Halloween. There’ll be lots of room for new items starting in November. Keep creating and sharing, and tell your friends to join in the fun of giving and taking free art!

The gallery on August 31, 2022

September has been a busy month with more gallery viewers, takers, and contributors. Free Little Art Gallery_WS1 seems to have alot of young, devoted patrons who insist their walks with parents/grandparents include this block of Virginia Road. What a joy to inspire young ones to enjoy and share creativity!

Known art to have passed through the gallery this month:

Goldenrod Solidago starting to bloom, Sept 13th

Remember to tell/ask your friends to contribute to the gallery. Let’s see what exciting pieces show up next month!!

(I may be slower posting photos on IG because one of my sisters is arriving from Australia for six weeks.)

This was the gallery on July 31st

There was a bit more traffic at the gallery this month. It’s so much fun to see kids who have the gallery as a regular stop on their routes or who ask their grandparents to bring them by after dinner! I was away for some time in August but know the following art was enjoyed and taken from the gallery:

The white and pink/white fish were folded from a contributed drawing!

I have a very talented friend who visited from Arizona and taught me a couple origami folds while she was here. We passed a young artist on our evening walk and told him we would fold the drawing he had just left in the gallery. How much fun is that??

July 4, 2022

The first part of July brought all the rain we didn’t have in June. And now the later part of July is hot days with fewer mid-day walkers. It was a slow month for art-taking but I did see a motorscooter arrive at the gallery one evening and a car pull up the other day (if I’m working at my desk, I can see the gallery through the window).

These are the pieces I know have moved from the gallery into the world, spreading joy and creativity:

WANTED: items for the free art gallery!

What do you have to offer? What do your creative friends have to share with the world?
