TIS THE SEASON OF GRATITUDE!
As we approach Thanksgiving I feel such amazing gratitude for the friends in my life, the customers we see each day in the gallery and for my delightful family. PLUS – our lovely little gallery has been given a very celebratory award…The Alaska Chapter of Fundraising Professionals has chosen 2 Friends Gallery as the 2015 SMALL BUSINESS IN PHILANTHROPY! I’m so very proud and honored to be chosen for this award. The award luncheon is Friday, November 20th in the Dena’ina Center. Thank you to each of you who donated along with me over the last six plus years! Giving back to the community was a business practice I embraced from the very beginning of opening the gallery. It feels both wonderful to be recognized as well as humbling. Doing good for others is so enriching for us all. Happy Thanksgiving to each of you! ~Jacqui
For the month of November we’re celebrating the creativity and abilities of Alaskan artists!
This is the kick off season for craft fairs, museum art openings, Bad Girls of the North and many others! 2-Friends Gallery salutes these artists in all of their endeavors! We know it takes hard work, guts to fail and hours of work to get your craft on the table and to the public! Yea you! As you venture out to do your shopping, please stop by the Gallery when you’ve finished to share what you purchased (we love to see what’s new!) and join us for a cup of hot cider. Many of these artists have been featured at 2-Friends Gallery as an Artist of the Month and we’re proud to help new artists grow in any way we can!
WELCOME TO OUR WINTER WONDERLAND
Santa and his sleigh, snowflakes falling and more gift ideas than Santa’s elves can imagine! We have things for dad….’keepsake boxes, RFID protected wallets, Alaskan Ivory carvings, and rings made from old coins’, things for mom…everything in the gallery will delight her – just pick your price range! Girlfriends love purses, scarves, handmade jewelry, and pottery! The new wall art consignments are wonderful right now – a large Ken Lisbourne, a silkscreen by Jen Weinshanker-Fox and a collection of wool paintings by Marilyn Methven.
