The picture today is of a delightful time when the sculptor, Gabrielle
Fischer Horvath came to visit my studio. Gabrielle was picking up work to take
to her gallery in Niagara Falls. That was a truly special time. I have rarely seen
a space as beautiful, welcoming, and tasteful as her wonderful gallery. I was
beyond thrilled to exhibit there.
Gabrielle is a fantastic sculptor. I love her work. And she was a magnificent gallery
director. As soon as our current lockdown permits she will be holding her
courses again in life casting. It’s her birthday today and I’ve been thinking of
her all day. She is a shining example of fantastic creativity, and resilience
in the art world.
COVID-19's effects -- the restrictions on holding receptions, classes and other
events in the gallery made it impossible to keep her brand new space open.
Everyone who ever entered the gallery misses it. So of course we are wishing
that one day she will open another beautiful space. Happy Birthday Gabrielle.
