Inside Somewhere...

Inside Somewhere...... a wonderful gallery opening I attended last night at "Just folk" in Summerland. The upstairs gallery featured the work of Jim Bloom who came from Philadelphia for the opening and gave a talk and answered questions about his work. I got to speak with him a little bit and told him how much I enjoyed his work. Jim is pictured below in the middle talking with admirers of his art. I didn't get many pictures of his work....too many people standing in the way...but I did take photos of the wonderful folk art and quilts that fill this incredible space filled with American folk art from all over the United States.

There was live music and good eats all evening....fun people to talk to...






Hope you enjoyed your visit!

Thanks for sharing views into the gallery. I love blogs that show what's going on wherever they happen to be. It's such a great avenue to broaden our world!
