Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Gittin' all cultured up!

First dedicated art gallery hangs shingle in Trussville
Social columnist

Trussville's first dedicated art gallery opened last week. And it's got a name you'll never forget - PinchGut Creek Gallery, named after the creek running through town.

Artist Nancy Ridenhour, director of the gallery's "Winter Showcase" juried exhibit, told the more than 200 invited to the opening night party that the gallery was a longtime dream of hers. She invited everyone to come to the gallery for a holiday open house Dec. 20, as well as every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free. [...]

The works of 41 Alabama artists and artisans were selected to enter the exhibit. Their 61 two-dimensional and 17 three-dimensional works represented all art forms, from pocket-size to large corporate art.
Well, now--seeing as how this is right down at the foot of the hill from me, I might just have to drop by and say hello...even though I might mess up the high tone atmosphere.
Many awards given during opening gala:

[...] The Hogan-Hare Award for the Best Fine Art Craft was given to Gavin Harris of Gallant for his forged steel and copper "Klingon Vessel." Walker said, "This dimensional piece is the embodiment of art and spirit of message. This artist is very creative and this is a challenging medium. You may never see a piece like this again." [...]
You know, that is just so true.

Anyway, y'all come look at our pictures and stuff.

(Oh, and by the way, Stinking Creek also runs through town.)
