The Word is ART...the beginning

Just rented
Isn't she beautiful!  This is the front of my brand new artist gallery.  It's right on a busy corner where the sun shines on it all day.  This is a morning shot where the sun is coming from the east, rounding south and by the afternoon will light up the entire space.  I have 3 high windows along the left side of the building that allows the light in towards the back of the space.
The larger window will be where each artist will have a chance to shine.
I have so many windows that I need to be creative and come up with ideas for the the others.  The 3 windows over the display window has matching windows on the other side of the door.  I'm going to add lights around them and keep them lit at night.  The sign will be in the window over the door above the address and the windows along side will have some stripes for more visual attention.

This is a view facing the rear from about 1/3 the way
Standing well into the space, I took this photo facing the rear.  Where the items are will be my studio area and where I will provide teaching space. Above that is for storage and doors will be built to provide coverage for that.  Curtains will be hung in front of the studio area for privacy. The door to the right leads onto a wonderful patio.

The patio facing west showing a view of the bathroom
A view facing east but you can get a feel of how large it is
I purchased 3 lovely round tables and will put a variety of  chairs around them for art events or even sit out there to have lunch.  So many plans, too many to mention right now.  I will eventually have planters all around, umbrella's and maybe even some graffiti on the walls.  Ah, the world is my oyster right now....all I need is time and a larger budget.

I am going to post the other photos I took as I progress when I have another moment.  I was so anxious to share at least the beginnings of my new adventure, The Word is ART Artist Gallery which is located in Culver City, California's art district. Yay!

I am currently seeking artists to show their work so if you are interested, please contact me at or call me at 310-428-1544.  I would love to share my dream with you.

Stay tuned as the gallery develops...
