A Warm Welcome
Southport residents turn out for Joseph Bardani Art Studio and Gallery’s grand opening celebration.
The cold temperature on December 9 didn’t stop a large crowd from celebrating the grand opening of the Joseph Bardani Art Studio and Gallery in Southport. The studio has 12 resident artists along with their instructor, Joseph Bardani.
The gallery was packed with art enthusiasts enjoying wine and a large selection of hors d’oeuvres and baked goodies. Visitors were entertained outside the gallery by the Cat-A-Tonic band, featuring their soloist, Carla Edstrom. Even Santa dropped by to wish us all a Merry Christmas.
The gallery is only open when artists are in there working, but if you see a light on, do stop in. They love to take a break from their work and chat with visitors. You’ll find Joseph Bardani Art Studio and Gallery at 715 N. Howe Street in Southport (directly across the street from the ABC store).
