Monthly Studio Update

Studio Update:

Last week I had the great pleasure of attending the first opening of Melissa Hefferlin/Daud Akhriev Gallery in Chattanooga. Their magnificent art compound was designed by Craig Kronenberg, www.hkarchitects.net, Melissa and Daud's brother-in-law. It consists of a elegant and solid proportional gallery street-side with monumental doors; a magnificent art studio with glass ceilings tilted for northern exposure; and steel, glass, and wood living quarters across from a court-yard.

Melissa and Daud are full-time working artists, here is a few of the 70 plus pieces that were at the opening:
