Details: Steve and I always make a point to attend the Ann Arbor Art Fair every year. During our college years, we couldn't afford most of the art pieces we really loved, but enjoyed viewing them while we were there. One of our favorite artists has always been Chris Roberts-Antieau. She makes these fabulous fabric paintings with subject matters that'll always make you smile. We always admired her amazing work and knew someday we would invest in one of her pieces.

We had been having a reasonably profitable art fair season selling our paper goods during the summer of 1999 and went to the Ann Arbor Art Fair ready to purchase one of Chris' pieces. It took us a while to even decide which one to choose because we loved them all, but we ended up buying one titled catching fireflies. On the way home Steve and I were talking about the piece and he mentioned what a cool name that would be for a gallery. I agreed, but never thought it would become a reality just a year later.
