The Arts Center’s Flick Gallery is once again open for business!
After a couple months of sheltering in place and amid concerns that the coronavirus may be out of sight but is not necessarily out of mind, emerging back into “the world”, even gradually, can be bit of a challenge. On the other hand, staying isolated at home can be lonely, frustrating and boring (can anyone else recite the scripts of most of the Hallmark movies verbatim?). We need to get out and exercise off some of the “covid-15” pounds gained from all the “comfort baking”, replenish bookshelves, stock up on cards and gifts for the next round of birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and graduations and renew our supply of things to do at home that don’t involve cleaning, cooking or weeding (as Shel Silverstein’s poem notes “housework is just no fun.”). The Arts Center is a great little getaway! There’s new art on the walls and around the gallery. Send friends or relatives notecards with original artwork depicting our area. Freshen up things around at your house with a new painting or photograph. Unique pottery, jewelry, glass and woodwork make great gifts. Or occupy yourself with our selection of jigsaw puzzles based on painter Sadie Allen’s whimsical views of rural life and origami instruction made simple by master artists Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander. Be sure and take a good look at Sunny Point pottery supervisor Rachel Gu’s unique work now on exhibit as well!
It’s time to treat yourself with a 10 minute getaway – and the Arts Center is the perfect place to calm and brighten your spirit. Why not give it a try?
(The Arts Center will be open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm with Saturday hours to be determined. Masks must be worn and social distancing observed to ensure a safe and comfortable visit for everyone. We can’t wait to see you!)
