Byron Werner's "Josephine Baker"

The newest Byron Werner mixed media portrait on display is of the great Josephine Baker.  She is something to behold.

Byron Werner's "Django Reinhardt"

Byron's mixed media portrait of the great jazz guitarist, Django Reinhardt, is displayed at the gallery in two forms; the original hangs alongside the full sized giclĂ©e print.  Byron uses all sorts of reflective materials, so the originals have an electric, shimmering quality that can't be reproduced in the prints. But what are reproduced with impeccable accuracy are the colors.  Both Byron and Amy have prints for sale that are excellent reproductions of the originals.

Amy Edgington's "Turtle Moon"

When we hung up this beautiful mixed media piece by Amy Edgington, the spotlight fell on the moon without being adjusted.  Serendipity?  Maybe.  But I contend "Turtle Moon" has magic to it.

some more ATCs

We recruited some of the folks who came to last week's opening to create Artist Trading Cards for our young friends in Belgium.  Here they are.

It's fun having art openings where art isn't just viewed, it's created.  
Thanks to everyone who participated.

A Groovy Time

Thanks to everyone who came out last night for the opening of "Edgy & Goofy." We had a great time visiting with our friends, listening to Rural War Room and, of course, viewing the incredible artwork of Byron Werner and Amy Edgington.

Unfortunately, we had so much fun we forgot to take photos.  No matter; this collage of Amy's called "Retro Party Animals" pretty much shows what went down.  Except for the dinosaurs.
