It has been a year since we first opened our doors. Wow. That went fast. What a great time to take stock.
We signed a lease. Renovated a space. Opened a gallery. Secured more than 30 artists from coastal Mendocino and from other parts of northern California. Found our amazing staff – Genie and Danna. Hosted a grand opening. Threw 11 artist launch parties and second Saturday events. Participated in one candlelit shopping event! Whew.
Here are a few of the things we have learned:
• Opening a gallery during a pandemic is not for the faint of heart!
• The north coast is a wild and wonderful place, filled with talented artists, populated by salt-of-the-earth people who turn out to help whenever need arises
• The art community in Mendocino is unrivaled
• Our LSG artists, friends and family are stalwart – showing up rain, shine, fog, drought and everything else
Thank you for an amazing start to what we hope is a long-lived and fruitful endeavor for all involved.
In honor of our first year, we’ve created a tribute video to recap the stellar art and artists who have graced our walls, floors, and windows. Click here to view.
