SANGER ART STATION is our new place

Well, it took me long enough to post again here. Mea maxima culpa. We said, "Good-bye," to our unique fruit-stand-turned-gallery the Art Stand Gallery in Minkler, and we said, "Honey, we're home!" at the Sanger Art Station in downtown Sanger. When we first moved, our space faced P Street. We have now for a month been in another suite, much more visible to the main drag of downtown, right on 7th Street.

Our address and time of operation are as follows
1533 Seventh Street #308
Thurs-Sat, 11am-4pm
or by appointment, call 559-281-9268 

Our members now are: painter Deanna Sue Bristow, painter Chieko Delgado, potter Elaine Towne Lane, painter Kay Owens, and potter T.S. Wood. Plus Bob Owens, Kay's beloved, has a small section in the gallery for his very unique horseshoe nail table sculptures. Some of us also do jewelry on the side, so if you're looking for interesting little wearable adornments, we have quite a variety of jewelry pieces, as each person has a different style.

On the last Saturday of the month, we participate in the Sanger Art Hop. This month's Art Hop will be a week from tomorrow, 30 August 2014. During Art Hop, we are open an hour early. So come and see us next Saturday between 10am and 4pm. We'd love for you to see our new place, filled with beautifully artistic pieces, many of which are new works that were created after the move, like this gorgeous seagull by Deanna.

In the meantime, have a wonderful rest of the summer. Stay cool.

Always "mud"-dled,

T.S.Wood, potter

Blossom Trail and Closing

Blossom Trail Greetings To You All!

I must apologize, again, for not having been diligent with posting. I must say that ever since I set up a Facebook page for our gallery, I have been more active there and much less here. Please visit our page and click "Like" so that you get regular gallery updates. Click here to visit.

There are several items that I need to bring up in this post. A couple of exciting ones, and a sad one. I'll save the good ones for later and start with the sad one.

With heavy heart we make the announcement that this Blossom Trail season is most probably our very last season at our current location on Hwy 180 and Frankwood Avenue in Minkler. This is due to circumstances beyond our control. Come and visit us on Wednesday-Sunday, 11am-5pm, until the 27th of April, 2014.

The first exciting bit is this: some of our members have opened up a new gallery in downtown Sanger called Sanger Art Station (on 7th and P #206), in preparation for the closing of the Minkler location. Our hope is that once we have vacated the ASG in Minkler, we will all join up again at the Sanger location. Please check out and "Like" the new gallery page on Facebook as well. Click here to visit the page.

Our "Blossoming!" themed tree to greet our guests at the downtown Sanger location.

The second exciting bit: PARTY! We would like to invite you to our reception for our last season this Saturday, 1 March, from 11am to 5pm. Please come and see all the beautiful art works on display at the gallery. Perhaps some of them already have your name on them.

T.S.Wood's Blossom Trail inspired pottery.

The third exciting bit, if you haven't heard already: our own Chieko Delgado is the 2014 Blossom Trail poster contest winner! This is her second win for the Blossom Trail poster contest. Her beautiful posters (signed and unsigned) are available at the gallery. Come and see us. Weds-Sun, 11am-5pm.

We thank all of you who have been our great supporters and dear friends, and we look forward to seeing you, repeat visitors and new ones alike, this Saturday and throughout this spring.

Always "mud"-dled,
T.S.Wood, potter
