Some days, I just don’t feel up to taking on the elements. My sister was in town visiting and the wind was howling and the cloud cover was making a hike seem more like effort and less like joy so we decided to see nature through a completely different lens—through art.
We’re fortunate to have in Graeagle a truly inspiring art gallery aptly named, Red House Art Gallery. It’s housed in a little red house on the green in “downtown” Graeagle and is open year-round. The owners, Toni and Brian Carl, bring in many local artists’ work as well as art they discover on their travels. They have a keen eye for finding engaging art of the natural world, whether paintings, photography, jewelry, glass or ceramics.
On this particular day the sun periodically broke through the clouds adding spotlights of illumination to an already perfectly lighted gallery. What a rich and luscious visual experience it was! Every time I go into the gallery I am reminded how much I love experiencing the world through others’ perspective.
As winter approaches and the weather turns colder, don’t forget that you can have a wonderful experience of the great outdoors by visiting the Red House Art Gallery. www.RedHouseArt.net
