the finch gallery…

i get newsletters from the finch gallery …but haven’t yet visited. (bad art newbie!)

i did ~ however ~ get to chat with them & see some of their past & present exhibitions

when they “snuck into” artropolis.  they rock.

incorporated in ’07 as the greenhouse contemporary art center (gcac)

…their mission ~ as a nonprofit group

“is to bring emerging artists & the public together

through lectures & exhibitions,

to provide a venue for educational workshops

& to work with the next generation of artists

to prepare them for a higher lever of involvement in the arts.”

cool.

(go read more about them at the link above)

One thought on “the finch gallery…

  1. Evan was looking over my shoulder when I brought up your site. “Who took that picture of Flynn?”, he asked. The little girl in the photo does look very much like my daughter – the pose and every thing.
