It takes a lot of time and money to start a new gallery.
But that didn't hold back Kathy Weston and her husband Stewart. She is an artist and he is a professor in the Biology Department at the college.
There are three parts to A Different Path. They started off with a shop...most of the inventory gathered from local artists.
|Unique and the kind of items I would have in our house.|
|This night light for example....it has to be my first purchase.|
There are also some socks that I need to buy...those mismatched hand knit kind.
The second part is the gallery itself. It made it's debut with work from the Arena Group.
This was one of the artists. And she was wearing a pair of those socks I want!
Even to they were still working on the facade of the building, the show went on as planned.
The majority of the work is now complete (and done with great integrity I might add) and they are ready to go out to phase three. Preparing studio space on the second floor.
We are fortunate to have a gallery of this quality in our little village.
