Today the chandelier in the Chandelier Gallery shines brightly for the strong survivors of 9.11

I typically acknowledge an event at Canary Gallery by not lighting the chandelier in the Chandelier Gallery. Today, however, the chandelier is shining as brightly as possible to uplift the survivors of 9.11.

As many of you know, my family are lawyers by trade. One of the cases we continue to protect is that of The 9.11 Widows and Children* as they refer to themselves. The children are no longer children; they are attending college and generally making this world a better place notwithstanding their losses. The Widows continue to make their mark in Congress, organizing Foundations memorializing their losses and creating the most tranquil, lovely gardens in loving memory of their loved ones.

And so, though the Widows and Children are in my heart daily, today, the chandelier shines for them.

Word is Out/Out of Words

Word is out! And we are out of words to describe the exceptional Exhibit of Patty B. Driscoll. Persistence opened last week to much anticipation and did not disappoint! The year long effort of Patty B. to create ten magical paintings which serve as metaphors of Southern women and their strength astounded visitors to Canary Gallery.

The paintings will hang in the Chandelier Gallery until September 29; we hope you will make time to view these exquisite works.

Copy of Sam Collins-American *Pop Artist* will be celebrated on Thursday, May 10, from 5-8 p.m.

A *Pop Artist* is an artist whose works are inspired by, or a parody or commentary on, popular culture, and whose works tend to fall into the style and technique of the pop art movement. Pop art resonates with most of us because, unlike many avant-garde movements, it incorporates subject matter and techniques with which a wider audience is already familiar. Pop artists favor realism, everyday and even mundane imagery and a weighty dose of irony and wit.

Sam's works capture Americana with a touch of nostalgia. His production technique (aluminum) is a brilliant touch! Pop into the Gallery; we look forward to having you.
