A very successful art exhibit by Sandra Dempsy and John Kowalcyk brought awareness of Inspiration Studios to many. Sandra certainly knows how to throw an exciting reception. Visitors from far and near (including Mexico) came to see tSandra's first exhibit and supported her efforts by purchasing a great deal of art.
This summer also opened the door for several exciting artists who will exhibit during the upcoming months. I met Letizia Perez from Mexico, whose art will adorn the gallery walls beginning with a reception on September 5 and another one on September 20. Her artwork is from Monterrey, Mexico! And I am thrilled to add some international flavor to the exhibits housed at Inspiration Studios.
The Village Playhouse will have an exhibit during December in conjunction with the very first community theatre presentation of A Charlie Brown Christmas. Members of VPW will exhibit their paintings, drawings, poems, photography...during the VIllage Playhouse Holiday Exhibit.
Kevin Batcher, a West Allis native and self-taught artist, was brought to the studio by his amazing wife, Traci, to pursue his very first exhibition. After hearing his stories of sleepless nights and perusing his story-rich art, our encounter led to a commitment for March 2015...and Kevin literally danced on the stage, singing "One singular sensation...every little step he makes....!" He's eccentric...he's crazy... he's true to himself and to others...and holds back nothing! And his art reflects all of that. I look forward to a budding collaboration....and friendship.
