Grace note to the artists:
“The Seaside exhibit is going very well. Denise Fairweather did an incredible job of securing the pop-up space, furniture and accessories (even beaver sticks) for the display, which resulted in a lovely presentation. Her careful attention to detail and perfectionism are mind-boggling. Even before it officially opened, visitors poured in to view the art. The exhibit is divided between the Fairweather Gallery at 612 Broadway and adjacent pop-up space Beaver Tales at 608 Broadway. Seaside First Saturday Art Walk was a great success, attracting quite a crowd of beaver art enthusiasts. We’ve sold 5 pieces so far at Seaside. Thanks so much for those of you who attended the opening and to Mike Mason, who did a demo of his lovely botanical art on Sunday.
Best wishes, and thanks again for participating in this exciting event.” Sara Vickerman
