Just this year, I began working with a really great gallery owner, Katy Beh. Ever since one of my students showed me the beautiful catalog that she puts together, about four years ago, I have admired her work as a gallery owner. She is the kind of person that all artists hope to be able to work with. So smart, very honest and responsive, and with a great sense of humor.
Katy also has nerves of steel. Her gallery is located in New Orleans. She has continued on this year by moving ahead and loooking forward optimistically to the future of her home city and her business.
In celebration of a season without hurricanes in New Orleans, she is putting on a Purple, Green and Gold jewelry show. Those are the colors of mardi gras and New Orleans. Even though it isn't the mardi gras season, there is a reason to celebrate nontheless.
So, best wishes to Katy and her city. May they have many reasons to celebrate in the future!
This is the collection I have sent to her:If you will be in New Orleans, Katy Beh will be hosting a great party on October 7th for the city's Art for Art's Sake gallery tour. As I understand it, there will be a very loud brass band involved!
