Turning Lemons into Lemonade

The new gallery hit its first snag this week.  Even though we got permission to use the name GARNER24 three weeks ago.  The person who OK'd it did not realize he needed approval above him.  Since we are in Garner Arts they felt the name was too close.  After about 10 minutes of mumbling and cursing I contacted my partners in the gallery (Julie and Mike)  they were great.  they said "OK we'll come up with something else".  While they thought about that I made a list of money spent involving the name like the sign for the door and the website etc.  We worked out a fair deal with our landlord so that we did not lose anything but a little time.  Julie came up with the idea of using the greek word Meraki.

It was PERFECT and really fit the approach the three of us bring to our photography and painting!  So we were able to work as a group come up with a solution and turn a lemon into lemonade!  We are working on logo designs now for Gallery Meraki and I already secured the website address.  All is good!

Keep Makin' Art!
