I’d like to thank you for all your recent efforts to the Arctic (Arctic Light/ Feb. 2015). I heard the even was incredible. I’ve been in the Arctic more than 20 times in the last 15 years. There is no wilder place in western North America. –Tom Campoin/ Campoin Foundation
Congratulations on the CEDR “Business service to the Community” award (Feb. 2015). You so deserve it and we’re so proud of you. You are such an awesome force for the Historic Gilbert District. –Wendy Richardson and EO Media Group
Big hip-hip-hoorahs and sincere congratulations on receiving your award at the CEDR event. You have been such a moving force among your Gilbert District neighbors and for the art community in general. You and a unique and gifted treasure. I am so honored to know you. Love, Joan S.
Your help and support have been so wonderful for me; I really can’t thank you enough for your energy and your promotion of my work. Your shop-now a gallery is of the highest quality – I wish you and your artists the greatest successes. With deep affection, Carmela Newstead/ Color Lover, April exhibition.
Thank you so much for a wonderful and another successful Seaside Art Walk. Your artistic flare was evident the minute we walked in….it truly looked amazing! It makes me very proud to be part of such a beautiful place and each Art Walk I get to know all the participants just a little better which is rewarding in itself. Thank you!!!

But wait, there’s more! More thank you notes to share. So grateful. So thankful.
“Thank you so much for the beautiful card and sentiments. And of course, I agree, the CEDR Awards Event turned out to be a great evening, and I think everyone felt it was a total success. I love listening to the speeches, and we had great speakers this year. But, the best part of the evening is honoring the businesses that deserve to be acknowledged. You are a very eloquent speaker, and it was a joy to listen to you. You have done so much, worked so hard, and you just have a “style” that is wonderful to observe. I agree with you, good things are happening in the Arts, thanks to people like you! I’m so glad you had a good time at the CEDR Awards Event.” Penny Rodgers, Administrative Assistant-Clatsop Economic Development Resources & Small Business Development Center CEDR/SBDC
“My favorite store to stop in and browse, shop, and talk to the shop owner. Always something new and vibrant to look at. Definitely one of Seaside’s best!” Mary Tibbot
“Thank you SO very much for your letter of reference, Denise. It is humble to read and be so appreciated. Bless you!!!!” Shirley 88
“You had a really good April for me, thanks so much, I do appreciate your hard work and consistently refreshing of the gallery.” –Michael Muldoon
“I have to let you know, I have been in a quite a few galleries, and none of them have the same warm and inviting feeling as your gallery. After I read about your background, I understood why. Your gallery allows people to imagine what the pieces of art would be like in their own homes. How that particular art-piece they are looking at would add to the creation of their home. I enjoyed being in your gallery, and have warm, happy memories about my purchase. Thank you.” S. Mulholland
