I admire people with vision. Over just a few days last week, Patricia Walsh Collins and Susan Joy Rosetty transformed an empty storefront into a thriving store called the “Art of Sprit Local.” I had just photographed the space to help market it, so am happy to see it rented.
When I saw how quickly and creatively, Susan and Patricia decorated the store and arranged all the merchandise I was thoroughly impressed. I asked Patricia how they were able to take an empty space and turned into a beautiful store in just a few days. She said that’s just what she does. “I see the big picture and then work backwards,” she said.
I call it vision.
The Art of Spirit Local is a collective gallery located at 34 Bridge Street in Frenchtown. It displays and offers for sale a wide range of items from paintings and photos to clothing. Everything is created by local artists. It will only be a here a few weeks, for the holiday season.
Naturally, I had to get an after picture to go with the before photo.
