You can be a part of history on this sweet occasion: we commemorate our 35th year in Old Town, our downstairs neighbor Yay Yogurt is enjoys its first year in business, and our building, historic Romero House, is 100 years old.
In honor of the auspicious triple play on September 13th we’ll have a ceremonial ribbon cutting by Cathy Wright, Director of the Albuquerque Museum, at the building’s front door.
Upstairs in Amapola we’ll cut and serve acres of birthday cake. Yum! Enjoy mellow cello music along with our featured artist reception from 1pm – 3pm. Come meet Becky Olesen, Joyance, Art Rosenberg, and Diana Swanson, September’s featured artists whose work will be featured in a special display.
Throughout the day past directors and past members of the co-op art gallery that is Amapola will be honored guests. We’re especially grateful for the work these individuals contributed to get us to this point in time.
During Sunday’s gala event, buyers ($35 minimum purchase) will receive a free gift while supplies last. The Gallery’s $35 pricing on many great items ends when we close for the day at 5pm. You’re sure to find treasures for all on your gift list and yourself too, complete with a free gift for anyone spending $35 or more.
Music + pomp + cake + great deals + prizes = festive fun for art gallery!
NOTE: Our $35 balcony sale was a great success, and a fun party. Thanks to all who attended and sent their best wishes. The vast selection of $35-priced items in honor of our 35 years in business continues through September 13, 2015. An eye-catching array of paintings, wood items, art glass, jewelry, photography and more are specially priced to give you a real bang for your buck.
Join Albuquerque’s premiere co-op art gallery Sunday, September 13, 2015 for the 35th anniversary finale. It happens 10am to 5pm at Amapola Gallery on the Old Town Plaza, 205 Romero NW.
After a lifetime batting words around like shuttlecocks in an endless game of badminton, it is a pleasure to use them to promote Old Town and my fellow artists at Amapola Gallery. –Kristin Parrott, carver, painter and acorn stuffer.
