Sprucing up for Spring


 Pottery by Sally Thompson.
Stained glass "Garden Art" by Liz and Rich Micho

If you haven’t stopped by Gallery 54 recently please make a visit to the gallery. We have been sprucing up as we usher in the spring. More and more visitors are coming to town. We especially have enjoyed getting to know all the lady bowlers in the area for the convention.
Every day we greet someone visiting Skaneateles and our gallery……. Wow we get to meet people from everywhere.
We have some great new plants out front and a new flag sporting our famous dot. The window is dressed up in spring duds and throughout the gallery you will find evidence that we artists have been bitten by the spring bug. Now I’m not advocating here that we like bugs. And I for one am not a fan of mosquitoes, which I’m sure are getting ready for their annual visit.
We enjoy everything from fresh new spring paintings to glass garden d├ęcor. The colors are fresh…. The pottery is inviting… and the wearables reflect the time to shed the heaviness of winter.
May’s First Friday event “ Light and Fire” ushered in the spring theme with beautiful glass pieces for the garden by Liz and Rich Micho, a great compliment to Sallie Thompson’s funky, eclectic pottery. The gallery was filled with old and new friends; the evening, soft and warm with music in the air. If you have yet to come to a First Friday in Skaneateles…… put it on your calendar for June 3rd ,when we will be exploring a dragonfly theme.  
The entire town is hopping.
