Fun night on FAM Night
I gathered a bunch of friends on Saturday night and we expected to spend the evening at the Kroma Gallery, one of my favorite places. We were going to take the trolley from the Mayfair right to Kroma, but one friend decided to drive, and just as well, because when we arrived, the place was shut down and dark. It was about 8:30 pm. We had assumed it would be crawling with people. It's things like this that stand in the way of the Village West and east becoming one Grove. I am not sure why the gallery would be shut on Gallery Walk (FAM Night) especially since we have a trolley now that can shuttle people back and forth, but I've been told that no one from the Center Grove bothers to go down to Village West on FAM Nights and I am guilty of that myself. I think with the trolley running now, it will be much easier to hop on and hop off and hopefully we can all be part of one large event.
There is always a line drawn around the BID area, I'm told that since Kroma is outside the BID footprint and the BID sponsors FAM Night, that Kroma doesn't participate, but we really all should participate since we are all one Grove and art is the common denominator.
I ran into friends at the Coconut Grove Gallery, where we ended up after coming back to the Center Grove. Above, from left is Elisabeth Smith, Liliana Dones, Jose Fernandez-Calvo and Victoria BTesh.
The Arts Festival Gallery had the continuation of Grovite Lynn Fecteau's work along with jewelry makers Carolyn Kerr and Adrienne Gaskell's. Ran into a lot of friends, there. Lilliana and I think alike and we had a good time with people we know, it almost seemed like a Seinfeld episode at times if you listened to the conversations going on.
At the end of the night, Lynn helped a customer wrap up a painting that she sold right on the spot. it was a good night for Lynn.
