Gallery North Newsletter
Phil Carrico and Tom Saknit
Life in the cooperative gallery is an ebb and flow. At the end of December, we will be saying farewell to Phil Carrico and Tom Saknit as their work takes them in new directions. For the next two months, however, they remain part of our collection…and we hope they will become part of yours. Fare well, Friends.

Free Art? What’s the catch? : We call it the Peoples Choice Award. Drop by the gallery and ask to vote. Fill out a short form and chose your favorite piece in the gallery. At the end of the month, one name is randomly drawn from the votes. The winner is contacted to come pick up a piece donated by one of our talented artists.
October’s Peoples Choice: Mary Bess Johnson’s “White Lettuce”
White Lettuce gets its beautiful color from the algae that it eats then keeps alive inside its body. The algae needs sunlight to make food, so the sea slug lives in shallow water. In exchange for providing a protected home, the algae shares some of its energy with the sea slug.
