Grand Opening at 846 Main St.

We have moved down the road and are pleased to be entering in with Sun Lane Stones. We’ve been hard at work preparing the space. Please join us for our grand opening tonight during the Wine and Art Walk. We will have food and prizes, and you will have a chance to meet the artists and see our new space.

In addition, during the Wine and Art Walk, we have the honor of hosting Spiritopia and sampling their specialty wines and spirits. From their website:

Spiritopia is an innovative, award-winning craft distillery and winery located in the heart of the Willamette Valley of Oregon.  We source the finest ingredients (100% natural, organic where feasible) and use our knowledge of chemistry to ferment and distill the best tasting whiskeys, brandy, liqueurs and aperitif wines.

We anticipate a great turnout and a fun evening. We hope to see you there!

Turkey Show and Competition

The turkey show has concluded. We would like to thank to everyone who participated and everyone who voted. We would also like to give a big thank you the Linn County Cultural Coalition, who made this show possible.

Your Turkeys can be picked up now. Please make sure you get yours by Saturday. If you are a winner, we would like to get your picture! Please try to come down at noon on Thursday so we can take a picture of you and your winning bird. Even if you are not a winner, we’d love a picture of you with your turkey.

If you cannot pick your turkey up this week, please call and make arrangements to pick it up later. If you want to donate your turkey, let us know.

Please take a moment to fill out a brief survey. This will help us plan for future events. Watch this space for upcoming shows.

People’s Choice and Artists’ Choice Winners

And all of the other creative birds

Turkey Voting Extended

Wow! This year keeps giving and giving. First we were closed during the lockdown. Then the recent fires filled the valley with smoke, sending our air quality into the “worst in the world” category and forcing us to close for that week. Then the rains came, and boy, did they come! We had some water damage that required cleaning up and drying out. The dehumidifier came out a couple of days ago, and we’re back up and running.

Because we were closed so much last month, we are extending the turkey show to the 24th of October. If you still have a turkey out, bring it back in. We will display it right away. We want to see everyone’s art! Watch this space for award information. This means we’d like turkeys picked up between the 24th and the 31st so we can have plenty of room for the Holiday Store.

As of this month, we are also resuming our regular schedule of Tuesday – Saturday, 11-5. Thanks for your patience and support.

Time to Vote!

Come down to the Gifts and Gallery store and check out all of the community submissions to our turkey decorating contest, then vote for your favorite in each category. Winners will be announced in early October.

We are open Thursday-Saturday, 11-5. Ballots are available and we are rotating out and sanitizing used pencils. Please remember to wear a face covering and practice social distancing.

See you at the gallery!

Turkey Decorating Deadline Coming Up

The turkeys are coming back in. We are so excited to see everyone’s creativity! We are putting them on display as they return, but official voting won’t begin until the first week of September. We have extended the turn-in date to August 29th, so if you have one out, you still have a little time to finish. We still have a couple of turkeys that are waiting to be decorated. If and you want to join the fun, come on down and get one!

This event is made possible through a generous grant from the Linn County Cultural Coalition.
