The opening the CreativeSpace Art & More Saturday night was a hit as several hundred guests turned out to share in proprietor Judy Kean’s vision for a unique gallery locale in Avon.
Avon Mayor Bryan Jensen was among those in attendance. Visitors enjoyed perusing over 100 pieces of art, sampled hors d’oeuvers and sipped wine while musician Charles Geil set the summery mood with classic blues/rock sounds – a perfect setting for a July eve.
85 pieces of art and 18 pieces of jewelry art were featured in the Shades of Gray show that served as the debut attraction for CreativeSpace Art and More. The show consisted of pieces of art that use Black, White or ‘Shades of Gray.’
Artwork ranged from classical to contemporary, from whimsical to serene. Pieces were not only expertly executed but priced within reason. Many show pieces were sold on the spot.
“Thank you to all that stepped up and helped with this first event. I truly appreciate it. I am sure things were done that I did not know about so THANK YOU, THANK YOU,” said Kean.
‘Shades of Gray’ is a juried show and awards were presented to the top three in Best of Show and also offered a People’s Choice Award.
The show is the first of many planned for CreativeSpace & More. Next show planned is ‘It’s Cleveland,’ slated for Sept. 19. CreativeSpace Art & More is located at 33760 Lear Industrial Pkwy.
