Eclectics Gallery in Kansas City

I've just joined a new gallery in Kansas City called Eclectics, which is so exciting. Eclectics is NOT a new gallery, but has been around for 19 years. But they graciously accepted me in via their jury process and we're getting ready for the new year re-opening on Monday, January 18 -- a great fresh new start for the new decade.

In 2009 I became a member of another KC gallery - Images Art Gallery - where I learned about the local art scene, met loads of talented people and made a bunch of friends. Painters are a breed apart ! They need vans just to carry their art around, while I can put my complete gallery jewelry display into a couple large shopping bags. Somehow I'm not at all drawn to painting myself for some reason - perhaps because my muse needs a more tactile medium....topic for another post sometime.

Anyway, I am very grateful to Images Gallery for accepting me into their midst and also for graciously saying goodbye.

More about Eclectics soon - I don't know much yet and am still retagging my stuff for Monday's opening.
