I was delighted to make the acquaintance of Paige Werth during a recent visit to the Good Luck Gallery. Paige was kind enough to give me a tour of the gallery and tell me about the self-taught artists she works with. It’s a great place to discover emerging artists. The current show is well worth checking out, but it ends tomorrow (August 27), so hurry.

“Yes, so the relationship isn’t about two any more. It’s about three.”
