New Landmarks Gallery
The formal parlor of the Gaches Mansion is dedicated to Glen Bartlett and the Landmarks, who spear-headed efforts to restore the Mansion after a devastating fire in 1973. Upon hearing that the four-story mansion was slated to lose the two upper floors, Bartlett contacted a group of local people and started the Landmarks. The group worked for four, long years to bring the mansion back to its original state. They held monthly fundraising events to raise the needed cash and supplied endless volunteer hours in cleaning, painting, and general help. We are so grateful for the foresight and hard work of Glen Bartlett and the Landmarks in saving the Gaches Mansion.
This parlor is now called The Landmarks Gallery and will be featuring the work of local artist. We have such a rich variety of artists working in our own backyard and want to support and share their work with you. These special exhibits will generally run for one month at a time and will begin with an Opening Reception. We anticipate displaying the work of artists using all types of fiber media, creating functional and decorative objects in the textile arts category. These include appliqué, beading, braiding, crochet, embellishment, embroidery, felt making, fiber art, knitting, knotting, lace-making, needlework, patchwork, piecing, rug-making, quilting, sewing, spinning, tufting & weaving, to name a few.
Workshops to learn techniques or artist demonstrations may accompany these special exhibits. Please watch our website for information about the artists, opening receptions, workshops, and demonstrations.
