Sunday Salons at the Courtyard – The coolest place to be this summer!
Summer is still in full swing here in Mystic and each week we celebrate here at the Courtyard Gallery at our popular Sunday Salons. August 21st we have a treat, as our friend Richard Harteis celebrates a special birthday with a reading from his latest book “Comes Love”. We’ll start with wine and nibbles at 3:00, then the reading will begin at 4:00, followed by lots more time to enjoy our ever expanding selection of original fine art, chat with the artists and with Richard as well, and relax in our intimate gallery and sculpture garden.
These Sundays have become a wonderful way to cool off and wind down from a busy weekend, each week different artists drop by, at times bringing new work with them. Join us any Sunday from 3-6 PM and see who comes in. It is a great place to share a glass, some good conversation and your passion for art, and find the perfect work to complement your collection.
Our “Summer Colors” show continues, with new work arriving all the time, as the pieces go off to their new homes. There is always something new to see! So come in and cool off anytime – our summer hours are Mon, Thurs, Fri, Sat 11-6, and Sun 12-6 and always by appointment or chance.
You’re always welcome at the Courtyard!
