Welcome! And Art Hop!

We would like to welcome 2 new artists to the Art Stand Gallery--they are Martin Nunez from Clovis and Kim Elia from Woodlake.

Martin is a photographer and he does stunning photographs of local "vistas" in a unique way. He has his photographs on display, some framed and some matted and shrink-wrapped. He also has gorgeous greeting cards and a professional book of his photographs. You will enjoy his work and you can meet him at Art Hop at the Art Stand Gallery this Thursday evening, September 16th, from 5 PM till 8 PM.

Kim, the second new artist, is from Woodlake and she has a unique display of very beautiful handmade books, cards, and journals in a variety of sizes. She also is sharing some mini-windchimes and large windchimes made from different metals. They are very much "one of a kind" and would make wonderful additions to a porch or yard. Come by and see them in our front window at the gallery!

Martin will be at Art Hop this Thursday. He will also be part of Sierra Art Trails in the mountain region north of Fresno the weekend of October 2-3. He is not the only Art Stand Gallery artist who will be taking part in this very large Open Studio event which is very popular. Kathleen Mattox and Sandy Kowallis will be participating as well. Their locations will be posted here soon but if you'd like to attend this very exciting weekend, purchase a catalog for $18 from one of these locations, gather a carload of art-loving friends, and "hit the trail" the first weekend in October. You can purchase them at many locations around Fresno and in Oakhurst and all pertinent information can be found on the Sierra Art Trails website.
