Thanks to all who braved the unseasonably cold weather to visit the Gallery on Friday the 8th for our opening featuring CGMS Gallery artists Gail Pasternack, Mary Ellen Dohrs, Sally Siegel, and Karyl Karpinos. A great night, but a bit cold for us sun loving Floridians!!

Now that the cold snap is on it's way out, Lake Avenue is the perfect place to stroll, visiting the wonderful shops and restaurants, while soaking up the SUN! The "snowbirds" are arriving, so be sure to bring all your seasonal friends to the Gallery to see what's new.

Our next opening will be Friday, January 22nd, featuring Gallery artists Sara Lerner, Victoria Rose Martin, and Linda and Kelly Dean Manganaro. Come by and see us! Click on the postcard below to enlarge.

Also in the news, CGMS Gallery artist John McCoy is on the move. For the past 32 years John has been a part of FAU faculty and has been a driving force in the Florida ceramics scene. John is retiring from FAU, but certainly not from the kiln. The Ritter Art Gallery, located on the FAU campus, is featuring John's work in a dedicated show titled, "John McCoy and Friends". The show opens Friday, January 22nd and runs through Friday, March 5th. Don't miss it!
