Annual Gallery Weekend

The Woman’s Club of Erie, 259 West 6th St, is hosting its Annual Gallery Weekend. This year’s theme is “3 Dimensional Art Forms” which would include pottery, sculpture, fiber art, jewelry and much more.

Opening Reception March 24th  5 to 9pm. The Gallery continues Saturday March 25 and Sunday March 26 from 12 to 5

This is a pay and take with you event.  Cash, Credit cards and known checks.

There are over 30 high quality artists participating this year, the likes of John Ballard, Jeff Urraro, Jessica Stadtmueller, Mary Bridgit Snyder, Lena Logvina, Dennis Cerami, Mary Hamilton and Bill Hess. A few of the many new artists participating this year are Vicki Newell, Donalee Stuck, Sarah Whitman, Randy Harris, Peg Kauffman and Cheryl Johnson.

Each year the proceeds go to restoration of the beautiful Galbraith Mansion, which was built in 1889 as a wedding present to Davenport and Winifred Galbraith. The mansion has 9 fireplaces and each fireplace is constructed of a different wood and marble. The red slate roof is unique to the Erie area and is always in need of repair. Just in the last month, the stone porch entrance has crumbled and in need of a $12,000 repair. The insurance company has denied coverage so this repair will need to come from the money we obtain from one of our many fundraisers we have for restoration.
