BIG News from TLGUTS

Hello! We have a lot going on over here at the gallery and wanted to let you know about the recent changes.

Current Exhibit
Important Things, our current exhibit, runs now through August 22. The opening reception is this coming Saturday, from 2-5pm, with a drum circle at 5pm. If you can't make the opening, stop by during our regularly scheduled hours, or call us to make an appointment. Check our new website for more information www.tlguts.com.

We launched a new website!
You can find information about the current and upcoming exhibits on our new website, www.tlguts.com. Please update any links to our old address with our new address. We are still moving information over, which we will soon complete. For now, the old website will redirect to this site.

This new site allows me to update the information in a more timely manner. I went against conventional wisdom by not waiting until the website is complete stylistically or back content wise because there's just too much new information coming in on a daily basis, and well, waiting until it was complete would havehindered our communications.

We launched a membership option!
With the growing number of people who want to become involved with the gallery, we have a new membership option. This membership policy creates a manageable work flow for the gallery, as well as allowing those who want to become more active various options of involvement.

We are updating our mailing list!
We also wanted to give you the opportunity to update your email preferences so that with these changes, you only receive the information you want to receive.We don't want to take up any more of your art making or art appreciating time than necessary.

To update your info or add yourself to our mailing list, complete this less than 30 seconds three question survey!

You can also use this survey to opt out if are working on a world changing project and don't have time to read our emails!

We have opened the Itty-Bitty shop
TLGUTS now includes a gift shop featuring hand-made items and art work priced under $100. This shop gives artists and artisans a place to sell their lesser priced, high quality works and prints. It also fills a niche in the downtown Lynn community by offering a quality, affordable retail option to our neighbors and audience. Each month we will feature a participating artist/artisan on our website. Members and are welcome to submit works for consignment. Exhibiting artists who are not members may consign qualifying work during the duration of their exhibits. This month's featured artist is Jeff Fioravanti. 

We are moving forward with our artists' resource room
We have transformed a studio room into an artist resource room. While this room is still in it's beginning stages, we currently offer members and exhibiting artists use of non-consumable materials such as a slide projector, a small, but growing library, wi-fi, a matboard cutter, a copy stand for photographing 2d art work, small hand tools, a sewing machine, and more. This project is still in its early stages, but is moving forward.

Mini solo exhibits
We will feature mini solos in our artist resource room which run concurrently with  our main exhibits, except when there is a solo exhibit in the main gallery. This is an opportunity for those in between exhibits, or for those with small bodies of work. The current mini-solo features artist Carol Calabro, This option is available for members only. 

Art Salons
Our months art salon for mothers will run the last Saturday of every month from 10am - 12pm. A general art salon is in the works. If you are interested, drop us a line and let us know when you are available.

We are starting a line of workshops, and are looking for presenters. Upcoming workshops include art as business workshops, color mixing, monotypes, and more. Check back for updates. Michiko Imai workshop registrations are ongoing for her calligraphy workshops and LynnArts will be hosting an artist trading cards workshop in August. Check their website for more information.

That's all folks! Thank you for your interest in TLGUTS!!
