Colour is everything!

If you visit our gallery often, you will have noticed that we move things around constantly.  Different arrangements, different light conditions, adjacency to different wall colours and textures--all make a difference to how a potential buyer will view a piece of art or an artisan item.  Frequently we have had an item in the gallery for a while, and once it is moved into that "perfect place", it sells right away.  I suppose that it needs to find that place where the viewer can visualize it in their own home, or in the home of a friend or family member receiving a gift.  At any rate, when you find the right placing or combination of items, it is magic.  I walked into the gallery this morning, and this placement of articles took my breath away!
