Saturday April 15, Loft Gallery Inc. officially celebrated the Grand Opening of their new space at 18 Bruce St. Thornbury.
The Gallery saw a great turnout to the day long events that featured everything from face-painting-Easter-bunnies for the little ones, live music and artists painting on site, to an after hours cocktail party.
The Gallery has been completely rebranded and rerooted to a new home. Owner, Heather Carroll, is pleased as punch with the transition thus far.
"Being on the main street in Thornbury has brought an increase in walk-through traffic, new and unique interest in the gallery and the space and has opened the doors to a new energy and vibrancy for the business," she says. Carroll feels that the new location is inline with the future and new direction of the Gallery.
It has been a great couple of months for the gallery indeed. Awarded business of the year by the Blue Mountains Chamber of commerce, Heather and her devoted staff "feel grateful" that their hard work has been recognized and to "be part of such an incredible community."
Regular classes and events are taking place in the newly designed, bright, spacious venue and Heather is open to more! If you happen to walk into the Gallery on any given Saturday you are likely to find artists painting masterpieces as they hang, serenaded by tunes of a local musician, a part of the Live@Loft series Heather has designed. One of her goals with the space is to make it a community, creative space.
Janet Liesemer, who teaches regularly at the Gallery has been selling out all of her classes, well in advance. A great indicator of a fun, healthy, open minded and vibrant community. Pop into the gallery, check out the website or stay tuned by signing up for newsletters and social media to find out about classes, contests and events.
