window gallery 3.26.2020

One of my 2020 goals was to open some kind of “window gallery” in my home. When I walk past art galleries on city streets and see the art hanging in their window, I usually wish I, too, had such a big gallery window to display my art in. Then at some point last year, I came to the realization that I didn’t have to have a “professional” gallery space – I could do it at my own home! Just a small gallery using one window with one piece of art. A Window Gallery.

And this weekend, I celebrated the grand opening of the Center & Miller Window Gallery! Here are pics of the opening.

Gallery view from outside my home. I may end up trimming these bushes a bit. After this sign was displayed, I added another sign with the hashtag #centerandmillerwindowgallery. That way, if passersby wish to take a picture, they can post it on social media using that hashtag:)

All gallery openings have champagne and snacks!

It was such fun to work on this and celebrate my opening:) Thanks to my dear husband for help and support. I haven’t decided how often to change out the art. Perhaps I’ll start with a weekly schedule, then spread it out to every other week or possibly once a month. If you’re ever in the Madison area, take a walk at the corner of Center Avenue and Miller Avenue to check out my window gallery!
