Even though we had an incredible amount of snow Friday before Artwalk, we dug out just in time to welcome art lovers to our gallery. So many people had cabin-fever that they came out looking for some fun stuff to see ... and we didn't disappoint. It was perfect weather for clay sculptor Ron White to do a fantastic ice sculpture in the alley of the studio. Thanks to the art trolley driver for dropping the people off in front of our studio where they could easily watch Ron carve away. It was like a winter carnival. And thanks to all who ventured out. By the looks of the crowds at Luigis and VegiTerranean restaurants the snow didn't keep many people away. Mark your calendar for the next Artwalk on March 6th from 5-9pm.

The City of Akron's free trolley service runs the entire route, making shopping convenient and parking painless. Trolley service begins at 5 p.m. and runs through 10 p.m. with destinations opening their doors between 5 and 6 p.m. Many Artwalk patrons make a night out of their visit to Downtown by enjoying a dinner at a Downtown restaurants as they peruse the galleries.

Establishing a collaborative line of pieces has been the result of determining that people enjoy using and viewing artwork on a daily basis. "We enjoy the daily overlapping of our personal and professional lives and we believe it enhances our individual creativity." Collaboration is an enriching process for theses two artists, and by challenging each other, a balance is achieved, and the contribution of each person's particular skills has here resulted in a product that surpasses what each could achieve alone.
