Studio 87

Studio 87 grand opening weekend
Studio 87 is a spanking new gallery in Perth Ontario, and whoooooa, is it a beauty!  Owners Randa Khoury & Martin Hauschild have done an outstanding job on a renovation to this historic Perth property which is located across the street from their current Gallery on Gore.  
a decadent feast for guests, clients and artists

Two weeks ago when I dropped off new artwork for the space, construction was in full swing...the beautiful (to be) limestone fireplace hearth only had a couple of stones laid, the walls needed painting, lights and hanging systems needed to be installed. 
beauty, beauty, everywhere!

On Friday Dec 9th, when I attended the first of two grand opening events, the gallery was miraculously transformed into a simply beautiful elegant space!  Really,  I was gobsmacked at how lovely it was, especially having seen it under construction only a couple of weeks prior.  Alexa and the owners did a spectacular job hanging all the work in record time for the big opening weekend.

Interior design/decorating of the new space is very impressive... thanks to owners Rhanda & Martin.  Rhanda has an interior design business and one of Martin's many hats had him designing and creating a beautiful natural maple desk top for the space (it was in use as a wine bar during the opening event). They have kept all the lovely old features of the space (wonderful old tin ceiling) but brought everything into this century, making it functional and welcoming.

As one of the represented artists at this new gallery, I feel delighted to be able to show some of my new work in this space.
