QUIRK

 

IMG_9913WE were in Richmond Memorial Day weekend for a soccer tournament…which meant some pretty good shopping during down time.

I have wanted to go to QUIRK GALLERY for years. QUIRK is operated under the direction of Richmonder Katie Ukrops..(see Domino Magazine August 2008) and whose Living room and Dining room were the inspiration for my colors….

In a weird kind of way, Katie and her home….introduced me to my buddies, John and Sherry Petersik of Young House Love…when, after seeing her home in Domino Magazine,  I went internet sleuthing for any photos I could find of Katie’s house and stumbled upon one of their first HOUSE CRASHES

it all kind of goes full circle…and I had to smile when John and Sherry were here, crashing MY house  Last August...and admiring MY Living Room…which was inspired by a room I saw in DOMINO MAGAZINE AND on THEIR blog!!!!

I have found myself wondering…I mean it HAS been 5 years….is her house still these colors??? anyway…Back to QUIRK….

Via the website…”Quirk features exhibitions of innovative work by both established and emerging artists….” I just know I saw some pretty cool stuff through the window!

Never ones to waste a good Photo-op…Phoebe and I had an impromptu Photo session, utilizing this awesome brick wall, on the side of the building, which sports some beautiful graffiti in one direction and the “QUIRK” Logo up above…graffiti1
