BIG NEWS - Gallery Events




























BIG NEWS!





We are thrilled to announce the launch of Earth Angels' "Gallery Events" to celebrate our favorite artists and their contemporary American Folk Art...



....AND YOU ARE INVITED...






We've just made arrangements with "The Country Life Gallery" in downtown Warwick, New York to host three events. This fabulous gallery space is owned by our friends Ken and Debbie Kroslak. I want to thank them for this amazing opportunity to showcase our artists and wish them the very best as the open their store...





For some time, I have felt strongly that the artists with whom we do business, and have celebrated in the posts to this blog, should receive serious attention for their work. Folk art has surely blurred the line between fine art and craft. It celebrates what we love, our homes and our memories, and it breathes a fresh energy into decor. As my pal Debbee Thibault said back in May when she addressed the guests at our Spring Soiree, it will emerge triumphant, as the art of our age.




So without further ado, let me say that we hope you can join us at our upcoming events to celebrate the art we love! Please save the dates...
