2020 Changes – Call to Artists

After a nice rest and a bit of rearrangement of the store, we are back up and running. Some artists were only here for the holidays. Look for them again come November. We said goodbye to our longtime friends Nemo Laine Art. They have promised to come back for classes and Meet the Artist events, so watch this space if you are a fan of their art. We also said goodbye to Kathy Jones and her beautiful stained glass and jewelry art, but not before buying up some of her pieces for personal enjoyment. We wish both of these artists well in their new endeavors.

What does this mean for the gallery? Well, for one, we have space. If you are an artist who has been wondering about showcasing your art in a public forum, come see us. We have a jury committee, but don’t be intimidated by that. We consider ourselves an approachable gallery and our store is a great place for you to get your start. Having a jury committee ensures that we don’t duplicate art that’s already in the store and that pieces are finished and ready for the buyer to hang or use immediately upon purchase. We are discussing some short term display options as well, so watch this space if that’s of interest to you.

Are you an artist who loves to teach? We have space for you. We have tables and chairs, a small classroom setting (or the ability to set up in the main gallery), and miscellaneous other items you might need to hold a small class. Inquire at the gallery if this might be something you are interested in.

Above all else, we want our community to know how much we appreciate your support. Whether it’s just a brief stop to appreciate our art, joining us for one of our fun art classes, a suggestion to a friend to stop in, a vote for a window display, or a decision to purchase one of our handmade items (which really warms our heart), we are so glad to have you as a part of our experience. Here’s to you!

See you at the gallery!

First Friday Wassail Walk

20191130_143028

Hey art aficionados, Christmas shoppers, and downtown supporters! It’s time for First Friday! Tonight we will be participating in the Lebanon Downtown Association sponsored Wassail Walk, so be sure to stop by. The store should smell delicious! We are also busting at the seams with one of a kind art, so be sure to save some time for shopping.

As part of the Wassail Walk, there will be a chili cook-off and a pie contest at the MVMB building. Contact the downtown association for more details.

We hope to see you tonight!

*As a side note, voting for window decorations is happening through tonight, so make sure you vote! There are a lot of pretty windows downtown. We are a participant AND a voting station.

As always, thanks for supporting downtown and Lebanon’s small businesses.
