We would like to thank you for a spectacular December. This was our best month since our relocation to Astoria, and since the Pandemic began. It's been a difficult two years, but your support through that time has kept us going. December not only provided us with many happy dances, but also put us back in the black. A lot of people chose to support small businesses this year. We can tell you from personal experience, that support has made a big difference to us. We appreciate you.
We are heading into 2022 in an upbeat mood. We have a fabulous program planned for the year, and the Astoria art scene in buzzing. We still don't know when we will be able to unmask and begin receptions again, but the Second Saturday Art Walk continues to be a focal point for shows opening each month. We will continue to create as much supporting material to enhance your online experience, and have some live virtual artist talks and events planned for the coming year.
Our first show of the year is "Land Forms" showcasing a new body of ceramic sculpture by Karen Abel. The show goes live on our website, and opens in the gallery on Saturday, January 8. We will also be showing Patricia L. Giraud in our printmaking area.
