It will all happen again -- an incredibly happy opening

Gabrielle Fischer Horvath and Joanelle Murray cut the ribbon
opening the Catch The Moments Studio/Gallery at
4444 Queen Street in Niagara Falls on May 11, 2019
as Lori Lococo City of Niagara Falls Councillor
 stands ready to give a plaque of recognition to the 
gallery.  Ms. Lococo has a particular interest in 
encouraging the arts.

Spring was a huge time for gallery openings the pre-pandemic universe.
Last year I was in 2 shows in May.  This one -- the opening of the
Catch The Moments Studio/Gallery was one of the happiest
openings I've been to. Gabrielle Fischer Horvath, the gallery
Director is a magnificent sculptor, and a great friend.  I had
five paintings in the show and they were on view in one of the most
beautiful privately owned galleries I've ever been in.  It is gorgeous.
And I was in its very first show.

This year feels odd because this kind of magnificent event can't
happen right now.  And we don't want large gatherings to happen until
it's safe.  I am so grateful to Gabrielle, both for the opening and for
 a long run in her gallery alongside her amazing sculptures, and photos
 by Manny Martins.

I know that there will be openings again.  And they will be
extra festive because we miss them so much.

Have a loving your life day.

Thank you for this post, Barbara. I looked at some of Gabrielle's work online. You're right. I like her work. Here's to some more wonderful shows with lots of attendees soon when it's safe again.

Thank you Candy. Her work is amazing. Yes -- here's to finding a vaccine for the virus,
and the delight of social life again.

I love your work.
