hotel gallery


last weekend i hung all my art in the hotel gallery in tipp city. the 3-story building is an old hotel that has been converted into an antique and art gallery. i am sharing a room on the second floor with 3 other artisans.


the building is so quaint and jam packed with such a big variety of handmade items as well as antiques of all sorts. it's just the sort of place i love to browse on a lazy saturday afternoon. one large room on the first floor is used for art classes and music fests.


during the summer months tipp city has an outdoor festival in the street the first friday evening of every month. artists set up tables to demonstrate their crafts, a live band plays and fun is had by all. tipp city is a wonderful old town -- it's like stepping back into the olden days.


i took many items out of my etsy shop to fill my space in the hotel gallery. so now i'm working hard to get some new inventory built up to post on etsy. i'm also working toward offering prints of some of my work. thanks to all of my loyal blog readers for following my passion and supporting my little art shop. you are all the wind beneath my wings!!
