I guess I can let the cat out of the bag now: the lease is officially signed on a new gallery space in Malvern, PA today. Artist Melanie Fisher is the owner and operator of the new gallery, called JAM Gallery, and I will be the gallery’s Marketing Director. We will both be curating shows by various regional and national artists as well as displaying our own work. We hope to have a soft opening sometime in the late summer, but first we have to finish up various business details (organizing a website, getting gallery signage, organizing the new space, contacting artists, and other paperwork details). Additional details TBA soonish. I am very excited about this new opportunity and I’ll be posting a lot more about this as we get closer to the opening date. I am also very pleased to be working with Melanie, whom I have had the pleasure of knowing for a while now and we’ve done various shows together.
I’ve also now set up a website (though it’s still under construction) and a facebook page for the gallery. The website is http://www.jamgallerymalvern.com and the facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/JAMGalleryMalvern . Please come “like” us on facebook and bookmark the website.
A couple of photos of Melanie and I at the opening receptions at other art shows we’ve done together:
In addition, this past Saturday, after participating in the Manayunk Arts Festival in Philadelphia during the day, I also managed to zip down to Harrisburg and go to the opening reception of Art of the State, a juried art show featuring 137 artworks from 131 Pennsylvania artists, chosen from 1,933 entries submitted. Myself and Melanie Fisher had the good fortune of getting our works selected into the show. The show runs through September 8th at the State Museum of Pennsylvania.
