GC Galleria now open in downtown Greencastle

Monday, December 7, 2009

GREENCASTLE -- A new art galleria has opened on the downtown square. GC Galleria is located in the same building as Greencastle Chamber of Commerce, 16 S. Jackson St., and celebrated its grand opening Thursday.

"I am really excited we were able to put this together so quickly," said Amy Doan, president of Greencastle Projects Ignition.

GPI, a non-profit organization aiming to foster small business growth in Greencastle, will be providing funding and support for the art gallery.

"It is the retail portion (for local artists) of the business incubator," explained Doan.

Each participating artist will run the cooperative art gallery. It will feature sculptors, potters, gourd artists, photography, jewelry and furniture.

"All the artists are local," said Sue Brucks, who is one of the artists featuring her painted furniture.

Artwork by Marla Helton, Brucks, Laurie Hardwick, Stu Fabe, Lance Myers, Mary Kertzman, Jessie Scott and Jennifer Harold will be featured in the new gallery.

In addition, there will be three food vendors from the Greencastle Farmers Market selling salsa, jams and kettle corn. Classes are available beginning this month for anyone interested in learning about gourd art and jewelry. All classes will be held on site.

The first Thursday of every month will be an art and wine reception and include an artist in residence giving a presentation on their artwork.

"I appreciate the work of the GPI board members and artists to make this happen," said Doan.

For more information on classes, visit the gallery. Any local artist interested in featuring their work at the gallery can visit Brucks at GC Galleria.
