Some very nice news today. I wrote a few days ago about the closing of long-time Half Moon Bay gallery, Eriksen. Well, local businesses are stepping up to help out displaced artist’s like me. When I got home, I received a voice-mail from Stephanie, the owner of a new restaurant called the Gazos Grille. She explained how she wants her place to be a reflection of local artists and talent of all kinds. She has live music on the weekends, and the restaurant is filled with local art and crafts. She sounded great. So, I’m going to meet with her next Sunday, see the place, and possibly show my art there.
I’m also going to approach the Garden Gallery in HMB, next door to Eriksen. I’ve always wanted to show there too, but have been loyal to Eriksen. They’re the first gallery to have shown my work, and that has meant a lot to me.
So, wish me luck! I’ll let you know how it goes.
PS. In the meantime, be sure and patronize this local place. They’ve got a heart: Gazos Grille, 5720 Cabrillo Hwy, Pescadero, CA 94060, (650) 879-0874.
