Friday, November 6th from 4-7 pm
ArtSpot Artist Reception for Toni Marie LaGree and Laura Gittings-Carlson

Join us this Friday, November 6th from 4-7 pm for an artist reception for Toni Marie LaGree and Laura Gittings-Carlson at ArtSpot. Toni and Laura, co-founders of ArtSpot welcome everyone to this free event that is open to the public. Plus treats will be served!

“When I initially thought about the process of creating and then showing my own artwork, I was terrified,” said Gittings-Carlson. “I consider myself an arts advocate and not an artist. But the resulting work was a surprise to me and I can see a progression from the first pieces to the last, which is exciting and helps illustrate one of the fundamental ideas behind ArtSpot – that everyone can create art”.

“As a partner in ArtSpot, it is an honor to create and show my work. I grew up drawing, often having teachers reprimand me for my penmanship after seeing my artistic abilities. The love of creating through visual medium has never left me,” said LaGree. “Sharing my artwork will hopefully bring joy and inspiration to others. And I want to point out that the artist in us is never done, because the ability and level you have today will be different in six months, in six years and onward.”

Works in a wide array of media and styles will be on display from November 1st through the 29th at ArtSpot, which is located inside Flicks in downtown Glasgow.

To show your work at ArtSpot, help volunteer, or to purchase any of Toni or Laura’s artwork please contact either Toni at 228-9072 or Laura at 526-7262 or email with any questions. You can also visit our blog at
