the very beginning:

Trustgallery was initially launched in the spring of 2010, during the 22nd annual Art Detour in Phoenix, Arizona. 

Seven paintings were displayed in a small gallery space, unstaffed, lights on and music playing. 
Four paintings were taken and paid for.  One was taken, but has not been paid for. 
Two were taken back to the trustgalley studio at the end of the exhibition.
This is one of the paintings.

That was an interesting experiment, but it took a lot of set-up - signage, gallery space, installation - and other projects were underway, so the idea was left to percolate.

The second trustgallery launch is happening now.  It finally occured to me that small drawings and paintings would work far better for trustgallery than big paintings.   Here they are.
