Elements Gallery Debut

Elements Gallery opened May 2.
Business hours will be 10:30 to 5:30 Tuesday through Saturday.
Or by appointment.

We received a lot of encouraging comments from our guests.

Everyone seemed to be having a great time.

I had a lot of positive feedback on my work.

Our eclectic mix of fine and functional art is colorful and complimentary.

The display of wearables got a lot of attention.

We hope to keep our place filled with colorful, interesting works of art. We plan to focus on keeping unique pieces on hand and sponsoring artists who work in a contemporary style, New Age, OutsiderArt, Fiber, etc. We will keep a steady supply of smaller items like pottery, jewelry, journals, scarves, dolls, etc. on hand to generate the kind of sales that will pay the bills. That will make it possible for us to take more risks as far as what we hang on the walls. This community has nothing else like what we've created. I am very pleased because it has sprung up very quickly, and is very much in line with my vision for the space. I am sure as word gets out, we will attract more artists who's work will fit with our style.

Your gallery space is lovely, and the art -- both fine and functional -- looks wonderful. Wish I lived nearer so I could visit. Of all the states I've visited, Montana is my favorite! There is a great gallery/store in nearby Davidson, N.C., and I do all my shopping for special gifts (weddings, anniversaries, graduations, etc.) there... it is wonderful to give a gift made by a person, rather than by a machine, even if it costs a bit more. Best of luck in your new venture!

I see that you're really fond of heavy equipment. Why don't you visit this site I've found. You would be really interested to see lots of machines out there: Caterpillar, backhoe loaders, Hitachi, excavators, john deere, bulldozers and more. You can contact the owner directly if you want.
