Even before evacuating for Hurricane Gustav, I knew that New Beginnings Art Gallery was having a rough time. It was around the corner from Friends of Rivertown Fine Art Gallery that closed in April of 2007. Anyway, I went to collect my art this afternoon. The gallery owner, also an artist, will be exhibiting at Steve Martin Gallery on Julia Street. In the meantime, my work still hangs at Ele Shoes & Accessories. Three of my small works were sold through this gallery.
