here’s to the crazy ones. the misfits. the rebels. the troublemakers. the round pegs in the square holes. the ones who see things differently. they’re not fond of rules. and they have no respect for the status quo. you can quote them, disagree with them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. about the only thing that you can’t do, is ignore them. because they change things. they invent. they imagine. they heal. they explore. they create. they inspire. they push the human race forward. maybe they have to be crazy. how else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? or, sit in silence and hear a song that hasn’t been written? or, gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? we make tools for these kinds of people. while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

yet another verrry successful reception at projectgallery. despite the 107 degree weather and infamous stillwater summers, people came out of the woodwork and filled the gallery with oohs and ahhs. congratulations artists, that was all you.
gallery boy jonathon, being the best person ever.
it is this bright at 8 o'clock.
and its over. we will definitely miss how great the work looks in the space...and our ceramic security guards.
we have received an amazing response to our current show. most people can recognize how incredible the work is. Many are in awe of what remarkable execution of the sculptures artist, eva miller, has achieved.
but meet zela. projectgallery's youngest supporter. zela has come in three times since our current show has been up, because the pieces make her so happy. eva miller's larger than life ceramic people really make this baby smile. it is an amazing thing watching art move someone so young.
since the grand opening, we have had one other show and a film screening. the screening was of liz tabish's (a student at osu) the angle, a film noir. the gallery space proved itself as a great movie theater as well. you can check out the trailer here. dvds are available for sale at projectgallery. liz rocks.
the stillwater artist coalition also put on a little shindig. the show was called "avante gaurd" (yesss, spelt that way) and had a fabulous turnout. there were multiple performers and lots of great people, art and music. again, just a few pictures to tease you until the website is up..
its been over a month since the last post, and we apologize. our lives have been a bit wild with the gallery opening etc. however, now it is summer. and we can breath. the opening was more fabulous than we could have imagined...the turn out was amazing and it meant a lot to see so many people showing their support. the gallery is now open, located at 715 south main street. this summer, we will be doing a lot of planning, organizing and scheduling, the things most people do before starting a business. so let us know asap if you have an idea for an event or for anything. we have a few shows planned already, more about that soon. we also are in the process of planning some children's art camps-if you are interested in that send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). here are just a few pictures from the opening. thanks to the kind kind man named mat miller, we will soon have a fancy shmancy project gallery website, that will include many more photos, information and fun things. then this little blog will stop being congested with the information from the gallery...
surviving stillwater is much easier with a fun project.
