Saturday August 11, 2012 marked the fruition of a dream. The Seeds Gallery located at 5011 Baltimore Ave opened its doors with four artists featured. The opening exhibit featured works by Charles Barbin, Artist/Public Murals Designer, Robert Brahin, Documentary Photographer, Russell Brodie, West Philly artist and Jeremy Fahringer, West Philly artist. Upon my arrival, I was happy to see families both inside and outside of the Gallery. The Gallery was inviting and relaxed. The food was good as well as the choices of wines. The mission of the Seeds Gallery is to create a networking forum for local artists and to help seed them into the community. The aim is to seed local artists by helping to create exposure for their work, develop their business skills and present their work to clients. They will help foster relationships between artists and their client base and assist with transactions.
The Seeds Gallery is not a traditional gallery; but you need to go and check it out. The Seeds Gallery intends to not only have showings of local artists, but they are also working to educate artists in business practices.
The Cedar Park area is full of unsigned, but noteworthy artists who could take advantage of the offerings of The Seeds Gallery and its staff. We are excited to have them in our community.
