New “Follow” sign

It’s been a month with lots of positive comments from people walking by!!! They all appreciate the whimsy and beauty the Free Little Art Gallery brings to their daily walks. Several artists from out of state have mailed artwork to offer in our neighborhood gallery…. how much fun is that!?

We had LOTS of rain with wind at times, and there was water in the gallery!!! The small bench’s wood glue dissolved, and some art on paper got a bit curly. The gallery’s been dried out, caulked, and a copper roof has been ordered. The bench has been re-glued, and the gallery will weather future storms in style.

Remember, when you take items, it leaves room for new ones to be installed!!

Here’s what’s currently installed or has moved through the gallery the past month:

Yard Art Day 2021 Installation: Rainbow Bottle Garden with flowers from repurposed magazine images, chocolate boxes and plastic sign holders.

MAY THE FUN AND JOY CONTINUE. THE WORLD THRIVES ON GENEROSITY!!

So what’s been added since the May 2nd update?? The weather has definitely gotten warmer so more people are walking by, many stopping to view the gallery. There are some neighborhood kids really jazzed about the exchange; it is so rewarding to see their excitement!!

Hope to see you on the street enjoying the gallery, taking art, or placing art!!! I’d love to start getting photos of happy gallery viewers and donors 😉

Please message me if you think there are other FB pages I should post on.

FLAG April 22, 2021 Update

It’s been a busy month with increasing donations and more people willing to TaKe ART!!! An easel went missing but was returned, and just this week, my favorite art patron, Sassy, returned to the gallery.

Here are some of the items displayed/taken from the gallery this past month. There may be some I missed if I didn’t get out there soon enough! It’s been especially fun having kids excited and participating in the art-making and exchanging. We even had a tumbling session on the lawn one evening. 🙂
