Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all you Mom’s out there!  I’m sending love out to my 91 year old grandmother Virginia, who instilled a love of art in us by making art galleries and art projects part of our annual summer adventures.  She was always painting, doing needle work, or some other art project.  I have one of her watercolors hanging in my office.  Big Hug and Kiss Grandma!  To Mom – I miss you!

We have a lot of fun planned for this summer.  Next up is the installation of Mannequins on the Loop, which takes place next Saturday, May 17.  The event, in its 6th season, is sponsored by Figure8Designs.   Local artists and design teams will be decorating half/full body mannequins for outdoor display – following a community theme.  All the mannequins should be in place at various locations throughout the Loop by 6 pm that evening.

Serendipity Gallery is very excited to have Zack Smithey designing our mannequin, which will be installed in front of the gallery.  We look forward to sharing his art with everyone.

We are also excited to welcome some new artists to the gallery for the Spring/Summer season including Tricia Coyle, Richard Gordon, Mary Nasser, Naomi Silver and Mark Witzling.

Please join us for a beverage on Saturday, May 17 from 6 to 8:30 to celebrate the installation of Zack’s mannequin and to meet Zack and a few of our new artists.

Until then, have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!
