Thankfully, Spring has finally arrived. With all the changes in color arriving, changes are also taking place in the Gallery of Inspiration. Employees changes from time to time help to bring about new and fresh ideas and perspectives. We welcome Thomas Shaner aboard at The Gallery of Inspiration as an Assistant. As many as you know, Thomas is a Pet Portrait Artist who is pretty well-known in the arts arena in the Cape Girardeau area. Now Thomas is learning what it means to be employed and work in the sale of artwork and jewelry. Welcome Thomas!
Kelly Nigro is back on her feet after a knee injury and producing some pretty cool artwork also. She is well known for her 'Trees' and 'Haggie Maggie.' Kelly is another Assistant at The Gallery of Inspiration and she has great ideas for the front window displays. Kelly is like my second hand. I wouldn't get a lot done without her.
I am so thankful for all the other artists who drop in from time to time during the week to say 'Hi', drop off artwork, volunteer their time to clean, or to help out on First Fridays. This is their Gallery and it wouldn't be successful without them.
