URBAN Two Twenty Seven Opening

What a great time we had last night! We had such a spectacular turn out with both new and old faces, all of which were awesome to see. 3 of the 4 showing artists attended the reception and they were very pleased with the response they received on their work.

I think my favorite part of the evening was getting to see everyone's expression when they came in to see the new show. I believe everyone was very pleasantly surprised with our gallery and the collection of talented artists we have on display here.

We tried a new thing last night with mimosas, although I kept forgetting to offer them to people, so the majority of the guests sipped on wine and beer. Next time I will try to be more vigilant in offering the mimosas because now I have two jugs of orange juice that need drank. Anyone thirsty?

Also, we've been having a small problem with our emails. It seems many of you aren't receiving them...maybe they are being sent to your junk mail folder? Please e-mail us if you are having problems because we'd really like to resolve the issue so we can see you at our events!

Well, I need to get back to uploading event pictures to website, so I'll touch base with everyone again soon.

Getting Ready for the URBAN Two Twenty Seven Opening

We are just SO excited about the opening of the URBAN Two Twenty Seven show this Friday. On Monday we recieved Ben Pierce's work from Missouri and started to hang it. In addition to Debbie Klein's rad work and Amanda Dunnavant's watercolors we're just so pleased! Maybe I'm the only one here who feels like a kid at Christmas, but honestly rotating and prepping for new shows is one of my favorite things to do at Rising. 

I hope everyone can make it out. We are expecting a fabulous turn-out which can really only be made possible by your support!  The event runs from 6-10 pm so there's pleasnty of time to drop in for a drink and a smile. See ya Friday!!
