Last night was First Friday GalleryWalk Night

in Downtown Grand Haven.

For being a rainy evening and the first day of Spring Break, we had many visitors stopping in to say “hi”, listen to wonderful music, check out new artwork, and enjoy goat cheese from Dancing Goat Creamery.

Jack Leaver played in our front window.  We, all, enjoyed his talented song writing and guitar playing throughout the evening.  He and Brian enjoyed several conversations about a variety of musicians.  We even had a couple of customers dancing.   Made me smile.
April’s featured artists, Carolyn O’Hearn and Cynthia Fielding drove up from St. Joseph.  They brought along new work.  One thing I learned this week, is that their fused glass panels have metal stands that can be staged in your garden landscape.  I don’t know why this surprised me.  As Cynthia pointed out, the windows on our houses deal with hot and cold temperatures.    I can think of several locations in our yard that one of these pieces would look lovely.

Our glass artists stopped into another local business, Grand Haven Garden House, to surprise me with spring flowers.  Don’t they look lovely in Maggie Bandstra’s vase?

Remember, I said that we had a lot of fun?  Cory McCrory, our paper clay artist loves to have fun.  Her work is whimsical, light, bright, and sometimes even functional.  Somehow last night, we gained two more heads on our wall.
