Artists from the Buckhead Art Stroll, November, 2009

Rachel, Nick and I strolled Bennett Street. We started late and spent our time at Matre and TULA. We ran into fellow frequent strollers, Will Hooper (Will on Facebook) and Clark Goodwin. Still haven't been to a stroll? Did you know there is food and drink everywhere? Well there is. You can make these pictures big by clicking, then select "All sizes."

Cheryl Alifeld featured her underwater granddaughters: Charm Alert!!!

Matre Gallery's rooms are smallish and the owners use to it great effect. Steve Penley's statue of Liberty lights up the entire gallery.

I'm not sure I'd sit in this chair at Matre Gallery.
