Hold your breath. Count to three. Make a wish.

Come with me … and you’ll be … in a world of pure imagination. Take a look and you’ll see into your imagination. We’ll begin … with a spin traveling in the world of my creation. What we’ll see will defy … explanation. 

Momma’s magic Barn Dance is tonight! We already late! Do you hear that? Wow! The place is packed!  But it can’t be . . . Lord. Have. Mercy! Honey, you have hair on the top of your head!  You’re 25 again! Hey and I’m not a porker anymore and where did these high-heeled Candy shoes come from! Right! I’ve got it! Momma’s barn is smack in the middle of a vortex and it Rocks!

And honey nothin’ is more magical than art so y’all are gonna flip when you hear this: The Madison Artists Guild (MAG) is moving to Main Street in the Vason building at 121 South Main Street next to Antique Sweets!  Madison Artists Guild member Kiki Pollard said that being on Main Street “will attract more people into the gallery and lo and behold the building was available and Wayne Vason wanted us in there!” Of note, Mr. Vason’s wife is a renowned artist. “He’s been great to work with!” She says the building has about 1,000 square feet more than their existing space on West Jefferson Street! So Kiki says they are making requests now for artists to bring in more artwork. They plan to be in the new space by Oct. 2! The biggest change is MAG will be promoting individual artists more. “It really will be a bigger statement for the artist.” Kiki also let the cat out of the bag and told me not to tell but they also have a new executive director Bryan Hardman who will start in September! He is an artist who operated a gallery in Monroe. Kiki is do ding dang excited. “It’s good timing and we’ll be next to Antique Sweets. It just can’t get any better than that!” Indeed! Congrats Madison Artists Guild!!
