Robbie Poore and Fixing up the Gallery

Another week has gone by. March is quickly coming to an end. I came into the gallery and finished up addressing and labeling the reception postcards invitations for the May Fine Arts show. Now all I need are stamps and they can go out the first 2 weeks of April.

We are all working on Robbie Poore’s reception April 3. Robbie has done quite a bit of work on his show. I know that these are all new pieces. Robbie has made sure no one has seen these before, so I think it will make the show rather special.

I am hoping for a large turn out for the reception. This will be Robbie Poore’s first show with The Renaissance Art Gallery. There has been a lot of interest in his work shown since he joined the gallery last fall. I know the 3 pieces he entered in the Miniature show in November caused quite a stir! I can’t wait until the entire room is made over in his bits and pieces.
New Walls
Ron Haeberle is working on the new display wall in the main gallery. It is really going to be something, and will improve the look and flow of the gallery. We have some major changes to The Renaissance Art Gallery. It is going to make such a difference in what we can display. While we all love being in a historic building, having historic wiring is not nearly as much fun! Just having the new circuits has already made a difference. With the new display wall and proper display lighting, the main gallery will be much more inviting.


  1. The art work of Robbie Poore is ALMOST as interesting and unique as the person, Robbie Poore! He and Jennifer are to be admired, respected and loved by those of us who are fortunate enough to know the people behind the art! Warm hugs and turtle smiles, "A Friend" ;)

  2. We certainly feel that way at the Renaissance Gallery, It has been a truly unique experience having Robbie as part of our group of artists.
