Somi will close it’s doors at the end of Sunday’s reception, Fall in Love with Art, which is from 1-4pm. And with that, we bring to a close the co op venture that began three years ago at the Stangl Factory.
During those years, the gallery has been run by local artists and has offered paintings, sculptures, tapestries, jewelry, ceramics and photography for sale. The gallery has also hosted literary readings, poetry evenings, storytelling events, live music, fundraisers, wedding receptions, and open studios for artists to work from live models.
However, we find that we cannot financially sustain the gallery at this time. We appreciate the thousands of people who have come through the gallery and have enjoyed the art, and we are especially grateful to those who have purchased our work to experience it further.
Art enriches our lives. Art inspires, challenges, confronts, nurtures, but most of all, it speaks. It is the voice of the artist.
For those of you who have not had the opportunity to visit the gallery, please join us this Sunday from 1-4pm, take that leap, and Fall in love with art.
Dorothy, Tracy, Cara, Petia, Kim, and Cass
