It's cold here in New England but that doesn't mean that work has stopped at 10 Horse Art Center! In fact, we're forging full steam ahead!
Project Manager Justin Barros looks like he's headed off to the ski slopes but he's really just bundled up for the morning at 10 Horse! Over the past few weeks the temperature has occasionally dipped to -15 degrees fahrenheit and every inch of skin needs to be covered for protection.
We're almost finished roughing out all the window frames for the new glass. The horses who used to live in 10 Horse probably could never imagine how much light the place will soon have inside!
And if it's one thing we know artists like it's LOTS of windows. Nothing makes a creative soul more happy than a crazy amount of natural light!
The Group Classroom area and the Saddle Store (where we'll sell lots of our artist's work) is coming along nicely. This particular area of 10 Horse definitely needed a new roof!
WOW! The new ceiling in the Group Classroom and Saddle Store area is going to be so high! We can't wait to until the exterior walls are closed in.
And we forgot to tell you about these AMAZING cookies we got from our #1 10 Horse Angel Marcella Lawrence (Project Manager Justin Barros' mother)!
Do you know ANYONE who can back cookies like this?! We sure don't!!
Marcella obviously loves pop-ups as much as we do and she clearly took the theme to a new level!
Each cookie is actually 3-dimensional and iced to (oh, sweet icing!) cookie pages that look just like a book!
And just look at those COLORS!!! Who needs Martha Steward?! If real pop-up books looked this good and tasted this delicious they'd never stay on a shelf!
So thank you, Marcella, for creating these masterpieces for us and for being such a TREMENDOUS supporter of 10 Horse Art Center! What we do without you or Justin or your cookies!
More updates coming soon Kickstarters and thanks again for hanging in there with us!
