The Artists' Gallery (an artists' co-op)

With this post, I'm taking a departure from my usual ramblings about glass to write about a new artists' co-op in downtown Logan -- The Artists' Gallery. Over the past few weeks I've had the opportunity to work with a group of amazing artists, along with staff at the Cache Valley Center for the Arts, to pull together a new gallery on the first floor of the Bullen Center. It's been stressful, it's been a lot of hard work, and there were  several times when I thought, "There's no way we'll be ready on our target date of October 10!". But yesterday, on October 10 at noon, the ribbon was cut and the doors were opened!

We choose our opening date to coincide with downtown Logan's bi-monthly Gallery Walk. Last night, a steady stream of gallery walkers came through our doors. Many of the 26 residing artists were there to greet them and talk about the gallery, their work, and the work of their peers. The response from the community was overwhelming, and our opening night was a success.

Currently, the gallery's hours of operation are Wednesday through Friday, 10:30 AM to 5:30 PM, and Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM. We'll also be opened for many of the special events held during evening hours at the Bullen Center. (Gallery hours may change as we better understand our traffic flow, so call ahead if in doubt.)

Below is just a sampling of items available in the gallery. The next time you're in downtown Logan, stop by and take a look around!
