Hello all! We hope that this email finds you safe and well! We haven’t had an email for a couple of months, so if you missed our last update, we’re delighted to report we’ve got a new den! We will be back to our regular hours as of Friday March 5th (11-6 daily)! We will have a special (masked, socially distanced) First Friday open house from 4-8pm, so come on by and check us out in Patio Market at 206-1/2 San Felipe St NW STE 3. We’re just across from Guerilla Graphix and we very much look forward to seeing you!
Thank you as always for your amazing support!
Be well, live artfully!

NEW DIGS! 206-1/2 San Felipe ST NW STE 3
In Historic Old Town’s Patio Market
It took us an awful lot of time and effort, but the transformation is complete, and we’ve moved in! In our last email, we showed you all of the work we’d been doing at our new location, and in this mail, we’d like to show you the results! There are still a few small details to resolve, but our artists have now loaded their work into the space and it is looking fantastic. We are all incredibly excited about (and proud of) our new digs, and invite you to come on down and see what we have been up to– both with the space– and artistically during the pandemic! Below is an image of what we started with, and a few shots of our gorgeous new space!
GHOSTWOLF WELCOMES (BACK) L. BALOMBINI!
We are delighted to welcome artist L. Balombini back to the Ghostwolf fold! Laura exhibited her work with us a few years past and has decided to join us at the new location. We’ll celebrate in April for First Friday with a good-sized display of her latest creations. More then, but here’s a little about this incredibly talented artist and where you can find her online…
“I’m a storyteller who paints and creates what I can imagine. With degrees in clay and fiber and 30 years of trial and error… one does find what works best and what makes you happy. I’m not partial to any certain kinds of materials or surface… like a good cook I’ll use what’s at hand and explore where the materials take me. Whether it’s painting, sculpture, or my refashioned clothing line, you’ll find a theme of contemporary folk art and narrative storytelling runs through all that I do.”

Duality of Hope by Roe LiBretto
36″ x 36″ watercolor on panelThere comes a time in our lives when we open our minds and hearts to an idea that we believe will make our lives better. Our optimism energizes us as we put our faith in the potential of a better future. This kind of focus, this hope, can strengthen us during challenging times. But what happens to us when that to which we anchored our hope doesn’t fulfill our expectations? It is then that we must gather the strength of past experiences to traverse the emotional storm of disappointment.

GHOSTWOLF ARTISTS INTEVIEWED ON THE WETSTUFF PODCAST
In the past couple of months, two of Ghostwolf’s artists have been interviewed on The Wet Stuff Podcast with Katie Neely & Sarah McCord.
Roe LiBretto’s watercolor, The Weight of Compassion, was selected for the Women in Art: Reflection exhibition at Nuu Muse Contemporary Art in Dallas, Texas. This juried exhibition is on view from March 13 through March 27.
A portion of art sales from the Women in Art: Reflection exhibit will support the In Her Shoes Foundation (IHSF), a non-profit organization that prepares women for the work force. To further support this organization, Roe will donate 20% of The Weight of Compassion giclée sales made between now and March 27 to IHSF.
