The Exciting Goings-On at Sun to Moon Gallery

Everyone loves a good birthday celebration and this weekend, you can join Design District gallery scene mainstay Sun to Moon for their 11th anniversary celebration.

Sun to Moon is turning 11 and they’re celebrating by exhibiting the work of all ten photographers they represent as well as hosting a Holiday Open House.

The photographs on display will represent a wide range of styles from artists including R.P. Washburne and Scot Miller, the duo whose exhibit “A Matter of Perspectives” just closed at the gallery last weekend.

11th Anniversary Celebration opened on Thursday, November 29, but let me recommend you delay your visit until Saturday, December 1 when the gallery celebrates with a Holiday Open House.

From 5 to 8 p.m. on the 1st guests can enjoy a reception, mingle with several of the photographers and view the various prints on display. It will be a fabulous way to ring in the holidays while celebrating with Sun to Moon Gallery. Plus, there will be plenty of other gallery openings in the neighborhood to check out. I’ll update you on those later this week.

While we’re on the subject of Sun to Moon however, I want you all to know about a really cool community initiative Sun to Moon is bringing to the neighborhood just in time for the holiday season.

This December, Sun to Moon visitors will have two opportunities to visit with other Design District artisans in the gallery.

As we all know and Sun to Moon is recognizing, there are many studios in the neighborhood typically not open to the public.  Sun to Moon is introducing the public to these artisans by bringing them into the gallery.

On December 7 and 8, Doran Studio artists will be at Sun to Moon Gallery from 1 –3 p.m. showing their beautiful work ranging from small sculptures to pinhole photos to mosaics. Prices start at just $20, meaning this may be the perfect place to start your holiday shopping.

On December 14 and 15, Sun to Moon is bringing Eliseo, an internationally renowned stone and steel sculptor, into the gallery to exhibit his award winning work.

Visit Sun to Moon’s website for further information on their 11th Anniversary Celebration as well as their guest artisan showings and make sure to support local artists this holiday season.
