Down By the Bay

Today I spent a couple of hours at the historic Old Schoolhouse Gallery at Cleveland.
Loved the sculpture at the front....
It has little secret recesses with treasures inside...
As I mentioned in previous posts I, along with my other classmates at art were asked to submit 2 pieces for the annual Student Exhibition at the gallery. It felt very strange but exciting to see my two drawings hung....
I felt very blessed that some of my dear friends journeyed down to take a peek....thank you girls! It meant so much. It was nice to explain how the drawings are created.
Myself and others enjoyed watching my teacher Sandra Temple demonstrating painting leaf litter on canvas...4 at once!
and my fellow classmate Diane Smith working on a gorgeous little furry person scratchboard piece.
The gallery is a really beautiful space. I love seeing our history preserved and used in such a way. The art and gallery seem a perfect match. At the moment they are raising funds to move the historical Station Master's Cottage to the site which would be amazing.
It is a beautiful cottage.....all donations will be very gratefully received I can assure you.
The exhibition is on for another 2 weekends....I actually made some little purchases too. So lovely for the gift box. There is something special about buying a handmade piece.
Our refreshments attracted a little visitor who thought a crumb or two may  fall his way.
On that note I shall say farewell......stitching next post I promise!
Namaste and Blessings,
