I am delighted to be part of the Cville Arts cooperative. The gallery is located on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall and has a landmark out front - this gorgeous mosaic loveseat. There are 59 artists in the gallery and a range of original work is shown there. We all take turns working at the gallery, or doing work for the cooperative effort. I do enjoy working at the gallery because it gives me time to meet fellow artists, to explore the artwork there and to meet people who come in to the gallery. many are visitors to Charlottesville, and as a twenty-one year resident, I can share some the collective wisdom and information of all those years to the visitor or newcomer.
