An awesome time had by all at the Gallery!

Thursday’s event was a resounding success…..members of our local community as well as many people from other areas of New England and even Milwaukee came out to enjoy our ARTISTS SHOW!!!! Music by King Courteen was wonderful, they flew in around 2pm and after exploring the town of Putnam….took the stage and entertained the crowd.
Palo Coleman demonstrated the Japanese Art of bamboo joinery and imparted so many facts about the extremely versatile bamboo that is currently becoming one of the big players in the building arenas. His skills were made even more impressive as he was only able to really utilize one hand, due to an injury that has caused him to have a cast!! He was joined by his lovely assistant DEEK Derek Diedricksen….who was a major organizer of the event.
DEEK Derek Diedricksen was the one degree of separation that gathered the ARTISTS who gathered to have a MEET & GREET with the public. DEEK and Laura were interviewed by the incredibly sweet and ART savvy Mary Oliver from Windham Arts Council last week for their Fun, Festivals & Flair show on WILI.

Local ARTIST Jonathan Fritz was painting a new creation in front of his wall at the Gallery, answering the questions of the people gathered. Jonathan is known for his acrylic designs and murals, many found in NYC.
The crowd was entertained and inspired by the documentary shown, REUSE, because you can’t recycle the planet. Directed by Alex Eaves. The powerful film addresses the waste of resources and how recycling is not the only answer for our issues within the world!
Those who attended were treated to delicious gluten and dairy free fare from Two Little Buns by Jessica Sullivan. From pizza to crackers….all were delightful and healthy! Visit their website:
