Dear Friends of the Crimson Laurel Gallery,
I just wanted to give an update on what's happening here at the gallery. The biggest news we have is in regards to our new website. It still has the same familiar look and aesthetics of our old one just with a whole lot of new and more convenient features.
In our last update, we only gave you a few details about Andy Palmer, our new gallery director. He arrived in Bakersville a couple of weeks ago and is putting the finishing touches on the gallery for Thursday’s annual Spring opening. When we hired Andy, we got a nice surprise and a little more than we bargained for. More about that later.
