The gallery is currently closed and awaiting the arrival of artists Isaac Amala and Liz Simpson. The lower gallery will soon take on a new theme, one in which I can assure you we have never headed in before. But that's why we are The Janice Charach Gallery! We keep re-creating ourselves! These two talented artists plan an installation of neckties that will start on the ground floor and head upwards toward our skylight. Their entire collection is done strictly with mens ties.
Join us on Saturday evening October 17th at 7 p.m. for the exhibition opening.
Check out their blog and see just what these two cutting edge artists are up to. http://isaacandliz.blogspot.com/
