The opening of "Mixed Messages" ART Studio/Gallery in Sanger CA!

What a roller coaster ride the last 2 months has been! For the last 5 years, I've driven by a little brick building in Sanger that I've thought would make the perfect studio/gallery. In August, it had a "For Rent" sign in the window. On August 10th, we rented it. For the past 2 months, we've been cleaning, painting, planting and hanging art--in addition to doing the required permits, licenses etc.

On September 25, I had my "soft opening" of "Mixed Messages" Art Studio/Gallery and made my first sales.

On October 8th, last Saturday, we held the "Grand Opening" Open House from noon till 9 PM. Over 70 people came and we had art, food, wine, music by brass and woodwind quintets. It was a great day. The address is 1310 8th Street, at 8th and Academy, right next to the Oasis Bar.
The gallery is one block off the main downtown street in Sanger (7th Street), a block away from the outstanding Fermin's Steakhouse Restaurant, and almost directly across the street from the soon to be constructed Sawmill Restaurant and themed shopping center. There will be a Fresh and Easy store in that shopping center also!

The gallery is now open Wednesday through Saturday, from 11 AM each morning until at least 6 PM each evening. It will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, except by appointment. The phone number to reach me at the gallery is 559/905-3517.

The official Ribbon Cutting ceremony will be next Thursday, October 20th, at 11 AM.


  1. Your work is great. I too love mixed media. I paint in acrylics and then add all sorts of elements. I love the freedom of being able to use wax, ink, ephemera, charcoal.........whatever!! Come by my site if you get a chance, and become a follower, if you wanna :) I am new to this blogging thing but am trying to get the hang of it. Have a great day! Faye.
