Art walk

 This isn't part of the art walk but it's art. I purchased this beautiful piece from a former student to give to a friend of mine. Here's my friend holding it. She'd been ill with a life-threatening illness, and she's well now, and I'm so happy about that.
 My honey and I went down to Broad St. tonight to check out a few of the galleries that we missed last night. We went to the new pop-up craft shop that is next to 1708 Gallery. There are tee shirts by Pop Idiot (always fun) and jewelry and more. They'll be open every weekend through December. Buy local,  in Richmond, or wherever you live.
 The window display at Quirk Gallery and shop. Fun stuff and a really nice Sparkle Plenty jewelry exhibit.
 There's a new gallery on Broad street called Candela Books and Gallery. Their first show is an exhibit of beautiful photos by Shelby Lee Adams.
 This is the glass necklace that I got at the pop-up craft shop, by Sibelle.
I met up with a few of the Happiness Coalition people who were handing out cards. I got two and passed one along to someone else. What fun. Happiness is always good. We enjoyed being out on a really nice night for a walk. Meanwhile, in another part of downtown, the illumination ceremony was taking place.
