The End of An Era
The Heaven Blue Rose Gallery (HBR) in Roswell, GA closed for the last time Thursday night. This is like losing an old friend. The gallery first opened in 1991 and I started showing my work in 1995. The HBR has a warm place in my heart since I sold my first pear painting, Pears No 1, there. Is kind of ironic that the last pear painting I have completed, Pears No 333, was in the final show. I wish the best for Cathy Moore the owner and a great friend in her future endeavors. I know the Roswell art community will miss HBR as it was a major force in promoting the arts.
