Twenty-five years ago, an Art Gallery began in Kernersville, NC. Angie Jarman and her parents opened the gallery to showcase her father’s incredible artwork. Along with Harry Jarman’s work, Angie has showcased local artists, giving them a place for their work to have a bit of exposure. Angie has worked tirelessly to promote area artists, and I’m so glad I was able to join in the fun for the first time last year!
So once again, I’m having an Art Show at Southwinds Gallery, but this time is special in that I am sharing the spotlight with friend and fellow artist, Debbie Schiappa! She and I have been drawing downtown on Friday mornings for a couple of years now. We are showing several of our drawings and paintings from this body of work. We will also both have cards that we have made from our artwork. It should be a delightful event, complete with wine and hors d’oeuvres. You are ALL invited this Saturday, November 22nd, from 4-7 pm! Come one, come all!!
I call it a “big” gallery, for though it is quite small in square footage, it packs a punch with the amazing variety of fine art and craft that it offers. It is truly the perfect place for unique gifts and artwork of all kinds.
I’ve been giving sneak peaks at some of the items I’ll have there for sale. There will be 12 new artworks of various sizes and media. LOTS of sets of cards, two of these sets are brand new, never been offered before. All three of my books will be there and I will be available for signing copies to any who would like that. I’m also offering a variety of fiber pieces: hand-knitted and crocheted cowls, free-form crochet purses, and some other surprises for you to enjoy when you get a chance to come by the gallery. If you’re unable to make it on Saturday, Southwinds is open most days of the week so you can drop in and get ahead on your Christmas shopping.
I do hope I get to see you there on Saturday! It will be loads of fun!

Congratulations! I’m sure this will be a big success. I actually looked up Kernersville, and though it is not that far away (I frequently go to WS because I’m a member of Old Salem), I don’t like driving alone at night. Do you ever paint in WS? Old Salem is filled with plein air potential. All your offerings look wonderful. Patsye
Hope it went well for you and your friend! Hope you had fun too.
