Opening day at the gallery is fast approaching! We plan on the first day of business to happen Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 10:00AM. It's so exciting for all of us to have a permanent place to show and sell our art. The gallery will also be a "home base" for the Holmes County Art Group, whose members have provided some much appreciated help with the cleaning and painting to get the building ready.
Started by local artist and tea lover, Vickie Boley whose business World Cup Teas, LLC is the vehicle for the endeavor, she also hopes to begin organizing classes on various art related topics for both children and adults taught by several instructors. Featuring and staffed by local artist volunteers, it is hoped that the gallery will become a hub for fine arts and creative events of the area to be announced.
Featured artists will include Eva Artrip, photography, note cards, ornaments - KJ Coblentz, fine art photography - Barbara Hill-Rickman, acrylic paintings and mixed media art - David Ernst, pen & ink, comic book art - Brian Sommers, abstract paintings - Cheryl Miller, botanical art, landscapes and local architecture in graphite, colored pencil and pastel and hand painted ornaments - along with several other artists consigning their works as space allows. Vickie's fine teas will also be a feature of the gift shop.
The gallery is located at 414 North Washington Street, Millersburg, OH beside the Castle Club Banquet Center (former Castle Nursing Home office) on the Historical Society Campus. The hours as we begin this adventure will be ~ Thursday and Friday, 10AM - 4PM, and Saturdays will follow the Victorian House Museum hours of 1PM - 4PM or by chance or appointment. Hours will be extended during the holidays.
