From Gloria Ruff:

Having an exhibit at Homewood Studios was wonderful. Working with George and Bev Roberts was terrific. The space is very nice for showing artwork and for poetry readings, which John gave at our opening. It was great to be surrounded by family and friends in this community space. Being able to talk with other artists during the gallery talk was a nice opportunity. And being able to work with community kids doing a writing and art project was very rewarding. The entire experience was something I will never forget. I hope to be able to show there again in the future. In fact John and I are working on another project with photographs and poetry with Homewood Studios in mind.
