New window display

The photo just doesn't do the new window display justice.  Come see it for yourself and visit our gallery at 73 Main St., On the Common, in Plymouth.

Jennifer Mattrick and Jeannette McArthur dressed the North window today and did a really nice job.  You can't tell but it's their first time.  Jennifer is a fiber artist who makes felted scarves, cowls, hats and other knitted items.  Jeannette is a painter who works mostly with oils.

Thank you Jen and Jeannette!

We are gearing up for our next rotation when artists switch locations, bring in new work and give the gallery a whole new look.  We will be closed Monday, January 23rd for the rotation.

Today, Joyce Bouley and Cheryl Johnson joined forces and talents to produce these lovely bowls.  Joyce is the potter and Cheryl the painter.

Once the bowls are glazed and fired, they'll be ready for you at the Artistic Roots gallery.

Preview of Souper Bowls

Hi Everyone,

Thought I'd share production photos and finished bowls as our artists bring them into the gallery.

Mary Ober shared a glimpse of her production process.  I can hardly wait to see how they turn out.

Sue Tucker brought in two kinds of bowls. Gorgeous!

January 9 is when tickets, bowls and mugs go on sale at the gallery.  See you there
