Our First Showing! The Edmond, "Dickens Weekend" @ Dean-Lively Gallery!!!!
Bella Forte Glass will be the featured artists at the Dean-Lively Gallery on Thursday, December 4th, 2008! This is going to be during the "Dicken's Weekend" in Edmond. From what I understand, shop owners and others will be in period costumes (stuff they wore back when Charles Dickens wrote "The Christmas Carol") The Mayor of Edmond, Daniel P. O'Neil comes down and lights the Christmas Tree at the Mayor's Tree Lighting at 6:00 pm on Thursday night December 4th. They have really revitalized that little downtown area and it looks really cool with neat street lights and bronze statues, and brick walkways, and trees and all sorts of neat stuff. They are going to be having Penn Square Christmas Carolers, Santa walking around, carriage rides, street corner food vendors, the governor is gonna fly over in a helicopter and throw millions of hundred dollar bills down...... (I think I just got carried away, scratch the governor and the hundred dollar bill part) Anyway, Micah and I are going to be the featured artists and Elaine Dean will be showcasing alot of our work. We plan on having a beautiful red Chandelier made and hanging.(No promises, but we are working hard to make it happen.) Dean-Lively Gallery (Elaine and Greg Dean) has purchased and just recently moved next door to where they were for years. "They" (I think that means primarily Scott Butler) has really done a great job on all the construction and finishing touches. I think Scott could do Ty Pennington's job and make it look easy! A really talented guy! I'll mention this again and possibly again and again later on! We are looking forward to it.
