Gaslight Art Colony will have a special exhibit at the gallery beginning December 20, 2014. Because our Canvas at the Colony classes have been so successful (there is always a waiting list!), we decided to showcase our talented new artists' work. Our Canvas at the Colony classes began in the fall of 2012 and featured a new painting each month. Led by artist Jo Rich, the students have produced many lovely canvases which will be displayed at the gallery. An Artists' Reception will be held on Saturday, December 20th from 6-9 p.m. Music will be provided by local students and refreshments will be served. Join us for a little while between your holiday engagements!
