In October 2009, we hosted Smoke and Mirrors, a body art show along with the Permanence of Shadows a photo exhibit of Paul Bishops work. The show was hugely popular with more than 500 in the gallery. It was so popular, the police had 5 calls by 2:00 p.m. and the exhibit didn't open till 7:00 p.m.! We immediately started discussing another showing and chose July 2010. So, opening Friday July 2 is Women with Wings. We will have at least 12 body artists and their models. Photos will follow.

We will host a book signing for Jerry Greer and Charles Maynard Friday June 18 for the new release Blue Ridge-Ancient and Majestic. Jerry is a local photographer and has published more 8 books featuring his work and the work of other notable landscape photographers of the Southern Appalachians. The book signing will be from 7-9 p.m. with both Jerry and Charles on hand to discuss this new work.
We survived the 11th Blue Plum Festival. 80,000 in downtown Johnson City, TN is a lot of people. We've begun planning for Blue Plum 2011 already. Nelson Fine Art hosted the first Art Bazaar. First time we've done anything revenue producing during the Festival. I've been one of the organizers since it started and filled all my time handling details. You can count on a 2nd Art Bazaar. We sold more than 100 art pieces from the 22 artists on hand inside Nelson Fine Art.
