The Coffee Shop as an Art Gallery
"I'll have a small cappuccino... and a side of art!"
Coffee shops not only provide a relaxed environment for conversation and studying, but many also contain hidden professional and unique gallery spaces. The relaxed environment allows visitors the opportunity to get to know works of local artists without any pressure to buy--while also enjoying conversation and a good cuppa joe. What could be better?
This Friday, I will be heading to Everyday Joe's in Fort Collins to hang a new show, featuring 20+ pieces--including several new paintings. Last summer I came across the beautiful gallery space in Everyday Joe's, and am thrilled to have the opportunity to show my work in this space. Over the past year, I have had the opportunity to hang shows in 4 Wyoming coffee shops--all of which have been positive experiences!
Next time you are in a coffee shop, be sure to take a moment to check out the artwork on the walls. And, if you do find yourself drawn to a specific piece of art of the style of art that you see, don't be afraid to contact the artist! Most would be more than willing to meet with you to talk more about their work. One of the best things about hanging my work in a public place, such as a coffee shop, is the connections that I have made with the local art enthusiasts!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Till next weekend,
