The 10th birthday of Artists’ Showplace Gallery will be commemorated throughout the month of December with a gallery show featuring unique works of all 17 of the gallery partners in mediums that include watercolor, oil, pastels and acrylics and jewelry. The show runs December 6 – 29, with an opening reception on Friday, December 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. that is free to the public, with wine and hors d’oeurves.
Artists’ Showplace started ten years ago with a vision that very quickly became a reality. Several local artists had heard that a gallery in which they had exhibited was planning to close its doors. Seventeen enthusiastic artists became overnight entrepreneurs, and in December of 2002, Artists’ Showplace, at the intersection of Coit and Arapaho roads in Far North Dallas/ Richardson, opened with over 12,000 square feet of original fine art and jewelry. An added bonus was additional space in which to offer workshops and classes by nationally and internationally acclaimed artists.
While Artists’ Showplace did not start out to provide something for everyone, it has come close to being just that. Monthly receptions over its 10-year history have featured diverse shows, some of which have brought in packed houses of art lovers to enjoy live jazz, wine and hors d’oeuvres and wonderful, affordable original art, sculpture, and jewelry.
