The Grand Opening was held this past weekend, and visitors could enjoy refreshments and view artwork in the new location. Owner Alicia Reid also operates a framing business in the space.
Alicia doesn’t get as much time as she would like in playing with her art, busy as she is with this business. It was nice to see some of her work displayed; this one being one of my favorite pieces in the gallery. She starts with a photograph, then creates a painting that extends the photo . . . just lovely.
This little corner gives you an idea of the range of media diplayed. The stars are mine, and I was happy to see them displayed along side of some of my other favorite work – driftwood bird creations by Dave Petranek, of Janesville, WI. The gallery also features pottery, jewelry, textile art, photography, painting, turned wood pieces and other stained and fused glass.
Jack Zellner was the featured artist for the Grand Opening, and his paintings were prominently displayed.
After enjoying the Grand Opening, my husband and I went to dinner at the Metropolitan Restaurant/Cafe, located nearby on Main Street. If you ever come up to Janesville, we recommend eating there – unique and delicious food!
