212. Open

On the last Friday in each month in Towles Court, an area of Sarasota inhabited by local artists, art shops and neat restaurants, you can participate in the Towles Court Art Walk.  During the art walk last evening, we discovered Elizabeth Stevens Gallery and we felt so welcome with the red door open as if to say, “Come on in and look around,” which is what we did.  I went back today to ask if I could photograph the entrance but the gallery was closed.  Fortunately for me, Betty, the owner of the store, arrived to do a little work and after I explained what I would like to do, Betty opened her gallery and graciously invited me to  photograph it even though she was not usually open on Saturdays.  If you’re ever in our area, drop by Towles Court and browse through Elizabeth Stevens Gallery.
