I cannot say enough about the arts in Brecksville.
I wrote about the incredible opportunities the Brecksville Center for the Arts provides to the community and regional area and at the same time, we are fortunate to have an art gallery with a terrific artist, Paul Duda, right in the heart of downtown Brecksville. You can visit his website at Paul Duda Gallery, but I wanted to write this post to describe my own experience.
Our daughter is an equestrian and two years ago she won 4th place in the 2’ jumping classes on her pony in the Brecksville Horse Show. She was up against 16 other girls on horses, as we say. It was a great day for her and she and we was so thrilled. We, of course, took lots of pictures, and my wife, Julie, had the great idea of having one of them blown up and framed for her birthday.
I called a bunch of places, unaware of the Paul Duda Gallery at the time, and luckily for me, ended up right there at his gallery a day later. His partner was incredibly helpful and came up with a number of ideas for matting and framing the photograph. He was so into it that I believed I was the only person on the planet. And, because sometimes my wife and I are behind the eight ball when it comes to timing, we needed to have it all done in less than two days. Well, it all came together and we now have this beautiful framed photograph of our daughter hanging in the foyer of our home. It is the first thing people see when they enter our home.
Interestingly, when I was there, an internationally-known Russian artist was also having a number of his paintings framed and having prints made. He told me he lives locally and only goes to Paul Duda Gallery. He was so interesting and we chatted for some time. What a treat!
What a super special place to have right in the heart of downtown Brecksville!
