Expressions of Joy

Decking the halls couldn’t have been more fun here at Gallery 54. We sat through our monthly meeting with the aroma of pizza in the air.  Our meetings are an opportunity to discuss the working aspect of our co-op gallery.  Each voice gets heard which makes for some lively discussion. After this month's meeting we decorated the gallery for the Holidays. You would have thought we were a big happy family decorating the tree… what fun.
We have found some new artists to bring in as consignees. Most notably here is Lauren Bristol. Her coiled baskets are exquisite and we are honored to be able to share them with our customers. Some of our regular artists are bringing in all sorts of wonderful Christmas gifts.  There will be something for everyone here at Gallery 54…. Even toys!
The member/owners of Gallery 54 invite you to come out over the weekend to do your holiday shopping.  We encourage you to come out and support independent artists and local business this Holiday.  This is a wonderful way to find truly unique gifts and support your local community and economy.  We will be open Friday the 25th from 10 to 8 and Saturday the 26th from 10 to 5. Let us help you get all your shopping done, all in one weekend. For those of you who prefer the thrill of last minute shopping…… we can help there too!
This month's First Friday Opening on December 2nd will feature our “Expressions of Joy” show. The Gallery 54 artists invite you to celebrate the joy of the season with fine art, wonderful harp music, wine tasting and treats. We hope to see you then from 6-9.
