Grand Opening of the LAOS Gallery
LAOS is an Interfaith Bookstore in Amherst, of which I am on the Board. For months we have been working on converting a rather blah & boring meeting room into a Gallery. This evening was the Grand Opening as we participated in the Amherst Art Walk. Eric Ruegg, an oil painter & MFA candidate at UMass Amherst, was our featured artist. His work will be up for the month of June. It was really exciting to see it all come together and to have people show up to see his work and learn more about the store in the process.
