CHERRY VALLEY – After 15 years, the Cherry Branch Gallery is closing at the end of the year, proprietor Bill Isaac announced today.
The gallery is currently exhibiting a ceramics exhibition entitled: “From the Ground Up: Clay Forms,” which continues to Dec. 2.
It will participate in the village-wide Holiday Market with a two-day, all-day open house Dec. 8-9, featuring Christmas gifts. The Holiday Market will continue until Dec. 20, the gallery’s last business day.
“My intention in starting the gallery was to provide a venue where local artists could exhibit and market their work,” Isaac recalled.
“Over the years, a diversity of artists has had the opportunity to show at the Cherry Branch. Perhaps, too, some of the young people of the community have been inspired by what they have seen there to further pursue their interest in the arts.”
He added, “I hope that this gallery has contributed, at least in some small way, to the revitalization of the community of Cherry Valley.”
The Cherry Branch Gallery, located at 25 Main St. in Cherry Valley, is open from noon to 6 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, with special hours during the Thanksgiving holiday. For information, call 607 264-9530 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
