ALDERSON ARTISANS OPEN MINI-GALLERY The   Alderson   Artisans   Gallery,   one   quarter   into   their   second   year   of   operation,   was   rudely   interrupted   by the   flooding   in   June.   However,   Gallery   Manager   Jo   Perez   said,   “Artists   are   like   the   phoenix   and   we   will   rise again.”   Quick   action   the   night   of   the   flood   enabled   them   to   save   all   of   their   inventory   and   they   plan   to   return to their gallery space as soon as repairs are finished. Meanwhile,   Alderson   Main   Street   offered   them   space   in   the   Visitors   Center   so   they   could   begin   selling   art work   again.   On   Thursday,   September   1,   they   held   an   open   house   for   the   artists,   local   citizens,   and   all those   who   appreciate   art.   They   plan   to   be   open   in   the   Visitors   Center   from   11-4   on   Thursdays   and   Fridays and from 8:30 to 2 on Saturdays. The   art   ranges   from   photos   to   paintings   to   jewelry   and   much,   much   more.   All   artists   are   juried   into   the Gallery and their products are top quality. Perez   said,   “We   are   grateful   to   Alderson   Main   Street   for   the   loan   of   the   space   but   this   is   only   temporary. We will be back in our own space soon!
