July Art Gallery

favorites, muses

Clammy palms. Squeaky soles. Calloused skin. Beach days alternate with long days at work. Intense ebb and flow day to day. Monday: the sunshine and heat cannot be soaked up enough. Tuesday: we’ve had it—into a chilled coffee shop to hibernate we go.

A month to slow down. To reflect. To embrace. To open your eyes. Kicking pebbles as you wander down the street, you’re craving inspiration. You’re craving creativity. Spotting a gallery across the way with a colorful window display and a crowd gathered within, you make your way over. Upon entering, you’re overcome with a wave of gratefulness. Authentic art surrounds you along with authentic individuals. You begin chatting and taking it in.

Welcome to the Messy Art Gallery.
