Ribbon Cutting at the new Artist Colony at the Esplanade. All seventeen of us are in the photo, but I'm behind the guy in the wheel chair and the woman with the scissors. It was a fabulous event that met all of our expectations. We were delighted to have so many segments of our community turn out for the event! When the artists party, we do have a good time!

We're all part of the Artist Colony, but have decided that names for our three separate storefronts will help people to locate us within the complex. My studio mates are still debating a name for ours. The group gallery, nine artists, have named themselves "Waterfront Gallery to highlight their location. The other studio/gallery of three artists named Portside, again for their location.

It would seem that Starboard Studios and Gallery would be a logical choice, but some don't like it. For others, we're re as far apart as can be on a proper name. Here are some of the suggestions:

Northcourt Studios & Gallery
Marina Studios & Gallery
Harborside Studios
The Rightside Gallery
Rightside Gallery
Number 5 Gallery & Studios
Gallery 5 and Studios or Art Gallery 5 & Studios
Force 5 Studio and Gallery
Marco Art Gallery and Studio
Courtyard Studios & Gallery
>MI Gallery and Studios
Gulf Coast Gallery & Studios
Studio 760

We're certainly trying. I've changed my mind several times, but now like Marina Studios and Gallery. Maybe that's because I'm from Gloucester, MA, and a lot of the very best studios are along the waterfront in the Marinas. I could also go with Starboard or Courtyard. What do you think?
