tinku gallery news | june 2008
This is the first of our monthly emails giving you all the news from tinku gallery.  Okay maybe not ALL the news, since things seem to be changing on a weekly, if not daily basis...For that, you will have to check out the gallery blog or visit our Facebook page.

When I opened the gallery, I thought it would take a good part of the summer to work out all the bugs which is why I didn't schedule any formal shows until September.  Instead, I am rotating works by different artists, with new works  being exhibited every month.  This is a great way to get to know our artists so come and have a look.

One thing that was obvious immediately was that I needed to be open longer hours, so I decided to bring in some interns, who come to the gallery with great experience and enthusiasm. We hope you make us a part of your regular gallery visits. And if you have not yet made it in, I hope we will meet soon.

Warm regards,

Amrita (a.k.a. tinku)
Gallery Director
