Artwork At The Broad Street Gallery, Hamilton NY, October 2012

Spent the Sunday before last in Hamilton doing my co-op shift at the Broad Street Gallery, the street-level business front store for Kathy Herold's Hamilton Center for the Arts. Here's the front bay windows at 10 Broad Street, can't miss it! Right across the street from Colgate and open Wednesday through Sunday every week -- This week we are having a very interesting event on Sunday October 14 when curator Richard Castellano with give a talk on the ins & outs of collecting art, followed by an meet and greet after with all the Broad Street Gallery artists (hopefully!) in attendance.

Painter Catharine Westlake is also having an exhibition of her recent canvases in the HCA's project room gallery space next door at 20 Broad Street with an opening reception on Saturday October 13, then on October 20th we are hosting our Spooktacular Artorama featuring a variety of fascinating events for young & old alike, more on that soon.

Kid in a candy store all day, left alone to study the artworks, visit with viewers, snag a great Mexican dinner from the joint next door, engage in a little curating, and just enjoy being part of a thoroughly professional scene. This is what I wanted all along, and celebrated by bringing out The Drone Zone (lower right, leaning against the wall) to enjoy seeing folks witnessing it. And even got some ideas on how to approach finishing it from some viewers in town from nearby Clinton, NY -- Thank you!! it worked  ;D

I also took curator Kathy's words to heart and documented everything on display in the gallery, which ranked out to 115 images ... Since I'd already done the heavy lifting of adding them to the BSG's public Flakebook page, here's a link, still working on crediting all the artists but that's what coffee is for.

 And to answer the question up front, YES! all of the artworks shown are for sale, the gallery can take secure credit card purchases over the phone, and their contact information is found on their FB page's About section. That cow will not be around long, I'd move on it quick, and you'll see what I mean:
