October is full of art classes, new exhibits, and a special dedication of “Barrick’s Bench” on Third Thursday, October 20, 6 to 8 p.m. Barrick Wilson was a cheerleader for the arts, a gallery board member, musician, community advocate, and mentor to many. His family is donating the bench to the gallery in his honor, with a mosaic design created by Mary Lee-McDonald. Please join us October 20 for this special event. The NUTS (Newton Ukulele Tunes Society), of which Barrick was a member, will perform. Refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public.
Thank You... to the 43 founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery. Their foresight in 1983 to rent space in a former carriage factory and later to become owners of the property as a nonprofit arts organization led to a renewal of appreciation for creative arts in the community. The gallery today provides opportunities for all ages to gather, learn, experience, perform, share, and celebrate the arts. We invite you to visit the gallery and enjoy the beauty of the art and the hospitality of this historic space.
Three of the founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery were together at a special event in the gallery: Martha Knudsen, Dr. Frances Allen, and Naomi Wenger
