It was a beautiful weekend in Springfield, Ohio, for my show with The Frame Haven. It was great being with owners Don and Audrey McKanna again and catching up with so many old friends, as well as meeting many new ones.
With Audrey and Don McKanna, owners of The Frame Haven.
Audrey, in the yellow top, mingling with collectors.
Don and Audrey had their show print framed in so many different ways, and collectors loved being able to walk in and have a wide selection of choices.
The lady whose head is just visible to the left of the gentleman is Gesa Eimer who, along with her partner Margo Carey, once owned The Frame Haven. Don and Audrey took it over from them. The gentleman is Bob Zettle, one of The Frame Haven’s loyal customers. On the other side of me in the floral blouse is Sharon McLaughlin, who has been one of The Frame Haven’s framers for thirty years. Behind the yellow flowers in the black dress is Sue Ankrom, who has also been one of The Frame Haven’s framers for thirty-two years.
David and Vickie Roberts shared their own work of art with me. Isn’t this Austin-Healey magnificent!
At least three people at the show will be joining my daughter Patty and me on the Society’s group tour of San Francisco and California’s wine country. The trip is still on, in spite of last weekend’s earthquake, and we are going to have fun! Randy and Ginny Myers met me at the airport when I arrived. Randy is a past-president of the Board of Directors of the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education, and Ginny has served as Historian for the P. Buckley Moss Society. Don Morris met me at the door (pictured below) and wanted to show off his Virginia Tech shirt. His wife Karen works at the Canada Goose Gallery in Waynesville, Ohio, and she and Don come to nearly all of my Barn Shows. Canada Goose Gallery will be distressed with Karen away on our trip for over a week. We’re all meeting up in San Francisco, along with the rest of our group. Patty and I are flying out on Wednesday, and I’m excited about seeing San Francisco, Alcatraz, and Napa Valley.
The new gallery in downtown Waynesboro is scheduled to open on September 2, but I won’t get to see it until I return on September 5. It’s a great old building, and I’m looking forward to seeing our Moss dollhouse in the front window display. The Museum’s director Corrado Gabellieri and my daughter Ginny will be managing the new gallery. Jo Cowherd, who managed the Museum’s gift shop, will join them. Corrado will continue to do the framing for both the Waynesboro and Blacksburg, Virginia, galleries.
Danny Glenn, installing our dollhouse in the front window of our new downtown Waynesboro gallery. Danny is the husband of Museum staff member Jane Glenn and has been a tremendous help to Corrado and Ginny in getting the new gallery and The Barn set up. Thanks, Danny!
I’m also looking forward to my next gallery show, which will be with my friends at Berlin Creek Gallery in Berlin, Ohio, September 12-13. Gallery owner Nancy Tarzan and I will release my newest giclée of the area, featuring the Zion Reformed Church in Winesburg, Ohio.
Road to Zion depicts the Zion Reformed Church located in historic Winesburg, OH. It will be released during my show with Berlin Creek Gallery in Berlin, OH, September 12-13. For more information, please contact the gallery at 330-893-2686.
Everyone, say a prayer that there won’t be another earthquake!
