Gallery Night – Johnston’s Anniversary

Tonight is the third gallery night of 2014.  The next one will be December 6th, so you might want to come out tonight and take advantage of the weather.

In this recent article about Mineral Point (that went viral) Diana Johnston makes the point that “Everyone is important here, and no one is too important.”   If there is an exception to the latter part of that, it could certainly be the Johnstons whose vibrant gallery is open seven days a week and showcases the work of over 200 artists.

Take a look.

It’s a must-see stop for anyone visiting town.

Tonight at 5:00 p.m. there will be a celebratory ribbon cutting.  Throughout the day, the Johnstons are giving out these cool ceramic magnets.
