Welcome to our very first Gallery Gals chat, where Brooke and artist, Lulu Schwall discuss a piece of art they like. This was my pick, by 19th century artist Gabriele Munter, who worked with Kandinsky and the Blue Rider group. It’s called simply, Abstract, also known as Middle Light Blue, Oval.
Episode 214: Today I talk to artist, Luna Smith…all the way in Scotland. She has her own gallery, but she is also in the Saatchi gallery. I met her after I used one of her pieces as one of my Coup de Coeurs. She reached out to me and I knew I had to have her on the show. She tells me the inspiration behind her vivid, colorful paintings. Also, she can SEE music…literally.

I met Patricia Boyer in person, after finding her on Facebook. I stalked her artwork for a couple of days, then reached out. We did our interview at the Coffey and Thompson gallery.
It was the first time I had been there, even though i’ve passed by them for years.
When I got home from our interview, I got a text from another artist, Carol Ann Minor’s daughter. She thought her mother would get a kick out of being interviewed. So I met with her at Coffey and Thompson,
Carol is a very talented sculptor who has an inspiring story. She is deaf and basically a self-taught sculptor. [She wanted some figurines, so she made them herself out of soap!] Since then, she’s been coached and mentored by professionals who have helped her develop her natural talent. She uses other materials like bronze and clay. Stay tuned for the podcast…
It was great to see Sarah Ness again. She’s starting a new business, Arts in Health Institute, where she uses her skills to train other health professionals to incorporate the arts in their therapies.
Didn’t make it to any galleries this week, but I always enjoy the art at Legion Brewing, Plaza-Midwood at Tuesday night trivia. Art is curated there by Megan Lynch, who I haven’t actually met yet, but have read about & am super-impressed by.
