GRAND OPENING: Fine Home by Copper Shade Tree

Thanks bunches to Debbie & Gerald Tobola for taking time out of their very busy schedule this week to talk to our members about showing our work in a gallery. We got lots of great advice on what gallery owners are looking for from the artists they represent, what their customers are looking for, marketing yourself as a fiber artist and best practices for approaching and selecting galleries where you want to show your work.

The Copper Shade Tree is celebrating the grand opening of their new gallery, Fine Home, this weekend and you're invited! Come out and see the beautiful new space which features home furnishings and d├ęcor from 15 renowned artists.
