Another Gallery Closing in Phoenix

This is so sad. I’ve lost count of the galleries that have closed in the last few years. Chartreuse was very well respected, a must see destination on Grand Ave on first and third Friday art walk nights. We will miss gallerist Nancy Hill’s well chosen shows.

Chartreuse is still open now, and will be through December.

The gallery is in the Bragg’s Pie Factory building. During earlier and current iterations of a gallery in the space, I had participated in some group shows there. Chartreuse is about a block from {9} The Gallery where I had a solo show this Sept.

It’ll be sad to walk Grand during art walks and not see Nancy’s shows after Dec. I hope that the space will be a gallery again after that. Galleries are all struggling, it seems. Even Scottsdale, the upper end of our art world here, has seen galleries close or move to Phoenix, scale back, or rent space. I may be doing a lot more sales from my studio if this keeps happening!

Let’s try this Facebook public page thing again…

Facebook resurrection

At least several months ago, it seemed the time it took to keep a public Facebook page was no longer worth it, since FB throttled your posts unless you paid. (And, acquaintances who tried paying said they didn’t feel it was worth it.) When I clicked delete, the page did not go away though; it said it’d disappear in 14 days. Weeks and months went by, and it was still up, still occasionally getting views and likes, even though I’d removed most content and left a post saying I closed it down. So, I figured, if it’s getting notice without me doing anything, maybe I’ll reactivate it, but just not use it a whole lot.

So, about a week ago, that’s what I did, and here it is: https://www.facebook.com/CindySchnackel/

Cats & Guitars show

Today, I delivered my painted guitar, titled “Fragonard’s Cat,” to the Haus Panther studio, which is in the same Bragg’s Pie Factory building with the Chartreuse Gallery, where the show will open in January 2016. I saw some really cool artwork that people had dropped off and am really looking forward to this fun show!  More info: http://www.catsandguitars.com/

Tiny Works, last possible chance

I sold several of the 9 mini paintings I took to {9} The Gallery’s Tiny Works show in December. If you still want to see the show, be aware it comes down really soon, as they have a new show opening Third Friday, Dec 18! When I dropped off the guitar today, I walked by 9 and it was closed, as was to be expected at that time, but the small pieces were still up. I expect the pick up day will be any time now. If you want to check and try to still see the show here is the gallery’s info:
