The new space opened up last night with a show of the work of painter John Vandreal who mentored Willamette Student Rachel Sabin in the art of oil painting. Mary Lou and Alan (mostly Alan on the building front…) have built a new space for special exhibitions and the space was jammed last night and glowed in the dark, as did the gallery owner:

a fun new venue, and a fun evening!!
