Wow, Thank you. I just did a search for one of our artists, Wayne Summerlin Chattanooga, and your blog came up. Thank you so much for mentioning area 61 gallery on your blog. as we are still operating our local gallery on our 401k and need to keep it alive to show my husband's, David Crewe and partner - Rudd Montgomery's, hand crafted furniture (and speakers - www.facebook.com/SoundCrewe), and are doing everything we can to keep it open (we refuse to participate in a recession). We also love being able to represent other talented local TN based artists (over 40 artists currently) and host their works in our gallery. Thank you for the post and please stop by to meet me, Keeli Crewe, co-owner on Thursdays from 10a-6p and on Sat. from 9a-2p.
