See you in September

Yup... Asylum Gallery will be closed until September 6th when we reopen with Dan Samborski's new show of paintings - In Search of Virtue.
Our hours will stay at 1 to 5 pm Saturdays and Sundays for the rest of the fall. Also for Dan's show, the gallery will be open 1 to 5 pm on 2nd Saturday ONLY for September.

  • After that we're back to the same hours - except for 2nd Saturday, when the gallery will only be open from 6 to 9 pm.
Another temporary change is that CynStones Jewelry will not be in the gallery for this show.

  • You might have noticed our new logo which was designed by Dan. Many Thanks Dan, it looks great!

Asylum Artists' Antics

One of our founding artists, Cherie Hacker is a busy woman these days. Not only is one of her paintings visible on the upper right hand side of the new issue of Midtown Monthly Magazine (see detail above), but she's one of of the artists included in the Artists' Studio Tour coming up Sept 27th and 28th. Ann Tracy is also on the tour and will be showcasing her new studio digs out behind her house. If it's hot, bring your swimsuit for a dip in the pool!

  • Cherie's work won't just be seen in September here in Sacca-tomatoes, she's got work at the Altered Esthetics Gallery in Minnesota for a show called " Animals II Critical Habitat". Check out the website - She's also got some work being exhibited at Gallery Gora in Montreal, Canada ! You'll find their website here:

Helping Others

Here is the letter we got from the Women's Wisdom Project after they received our check from the sales of mail art earlier this spring/summer. Global Warming was the subject and we got mail art from around the globe literally!

Only Two More Weeks for Outlook

That's right, you've only got a couple more weekends to check out the new work by Marguerite Schaffron. I've been trying to get an image of some of her work up here on the blog, but blogger is having some tech glitches.
  • You can see work that was inspired by her recent trip to Mexico and some retreats she's had at a Buddhist monastery here in Northern California. The work includes photography, paintings and some mixed media work.
Please join her on 2nd Saturday from 6 to 9 pm at the gallery at 25th & R Streets behind the gray fence. One thing is for sure, you will not go away hungry. Marguerite is a very generous artist when it comes to receptions.
