  2. I greatly enjoyed the virtual tour of Blue Spiral Fine Art Gallery yesterday. It was interesting to hear Michael Manes talk about how they put together an exhibit. It was also fascinating to hear him explain which works they select for which gallery. With 15,000 square feet of gallery space, they have a lot to work with! I loved hearing the back stories or personal histories of some of the artists represented there: John Cleaveland, Frank Hursh, Alex Bernstein, and Ed Nash, among others. It was intriguing to hear him talk about how they choose which artist they display next to which other artist. He made a lot of connections that gave me some “aha” moments. Finally, it was exciting to finally hear Michael explain how an artist can get his/her work considered. It was a very worthwhile hour of my time. I’m sure everyone felt the same, and I hope we can get Michael to repeat the tour sometime for those who couldn’t be there. Thanks for putting it together!


  3. The Blue Spiral 1 Gallery Virtual Tour was enjoyable and very informative! Glad to have this opportunity during these strange times. Wonderful to see beautiful works of art while learning about the artists through stories of their lives. Look forward to more in the future. Thank you!
