Here we are blogging for the very first time . . .
We have done it quietly, but we are very excited about the launch of our new website. Would you have noticed a difference had we not told you? It’s something we have been diligently working on behind the scenes for way too long. Why the change? Better web and mobile functionality, better visibility, real-time updating, and addition of e-commerce, just to name a few.
Hopefully you’ll find that it still has the same familiar but improved look of our first Gladstone site, and that navigation is much improved. Remember how the back button on your browser didn’t work?
Of course, it is a work in progress, a labor of love, and takes many hours to maintain. We will do our best to keep things updated and fresh, letting you know about what’s new at the gallery in terms of both jewelry and art. Please let us know what you think!
In keeping with our newly hatched website, images that evoke Spring and renewal are on our gallery walls. Esther Pullman is back with her second exhibition of Greenhouse panoramas, and her third photography show at Gladstone, Spring / Greenhouse, April 6 - June 19. The panoramas on display exemplify the artist's incredible sense of composition through geometry, distortion, and light, and have thankfully brought Spring inside. An extensive portfolio of work accompanies the pieces on exhibit. If you can't make it to Manchester-by-the-Sea, take a peek at the range of Greenhouse images on Esther's website.
Outside, our window box poppies have popped! They are lifting everyone's spirits and once again, passersby are stopping in (and telephoning!) to tell me how much they look forward to seeing them begin to bloom every May.
