WHAT'S GOING ON IN AND AROUND THE LYNDEN GALLERY?

Despite the crazy, unpredictable weather Valentine's week, the "Hang-ups" exhibition opened to an appreciative crowd who came out in the lull between storms.   We celebrated the Winter Moon with twenty-five contributing artists, an assortment of decadent chocolate, and bluesy jazz vocals with Elie Schmidt, accompanied by Kirk Reese on the piano, Brandon Hollinger on sax, and Mike Vitale stand-up base.

We're preparing now to bring back some of our Frame Shop highlights in April, on loan from our customers - memorabelia, shadowboxes, etc - and will offer our clients an opportunity to meet with our design, restoration and appraisal experts.   The idea for the exhibition was born out of our own quest for the identity of a handsome, seemingly debonair, young gentleman whose portrait I inherited with a pair of gold, turn-of the-century frames I purchased a decade ago. He caught the attention of Diane Bitting with the Lancaster Newspapers, when she spied him propped up in my office behind a filing cabinet. "Who is that?" she asked, and I had to admit I hadn't a clue, but "he's my muse, and I've decided to name him "Edwin," I said.   So began our search for Edwin, and after a bit of cleaning by our restorer, Jeff Johnson, we discovered a date and signature, "Bayard Henry Tyler, 1916."   Certified appraiser, Claire Gilbin, is helping us to find out more.

Meanwhile, I've been busy in the design studio at work on two new construction projects, a small retreat in Perry County, and a home for a retired couple in Troy, Pennsylvania.   Despite the computerized design tools with all their bells and whistles, I find initial sketches still call for paper, pencil, an old fashioned wooden ruler, and middle-of-the-night sketching sessions when inspiration is ripe.   Early next month I'll travel to Portsmouth, New Hampshire for a follow-up project with a favorite client, and will come home by way of Saranac Lake to visit a completed project from last year, I have yet to see!    Find more on our completed projects here.

I thought 2013 was to the be year I would graduate, sell out of the gallery business, move to a "real house" and dig full-time into interior design/build projects - but life has a way of throwing a curve into the best laid plans.  After moving above the gallery (seven years ago, this year already!) David and I have found this is home.   We both love the constant stream of interesting people and opportunities that flow through our lives, and it appears the design business fits quite companionably alongside the gallery and frame shop activity.  So, I've set about installing some "real" furniture in the gallery, discovering flea market finds and attic revivals worthy of a second act.   These adventures and more can be found on our blog, "eat well and buy more art," or on our Facebook page.   We welcome your comments!
