Dear Patrons and Artists:
"The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." -Mark Twain
Unfortunately, not for River View Gallery, our next door neighbor. Yesterday, the upstairs tenant was making toast in the toaster and it was left unattended. On his return, the toaster and the cabinet it was under, was on fire. This left the kitchen with severe damage. The tenant was not hurt, because the fire department arrived quickly (as the HdG fire department has one of the fastest response times in Maryland). The volunteer firefighters were able to contain the situation with no significant damage to the gallery area. I spoke with the owner of the building this morning, and he expressed that no art was damaged, as the kitchen of the upstairs apartment is located in the rear of the building, and the gallery is located in the front.
With that being said, I have had concerns that it was Artists Emporium that was affected. I can assure you that there was no damage to our building, and everyone involved is fine.
We currently have the opportunity and the tools to branch out and create a targeted online presence in the art world. Mid-Atlantic Artists aims to take the hassle out of the online work the artist does to market their art. All that is needed from the artist is to submit basic information regarding the piece in question, and we will take care of the rest. If an interested artist is interested in having an online presence, please visit Mid-AtlanticArtists.com.
Our resident artist Ezra Berger was interviewed by local news station WBAL (NBC affiliate) regarding a recent mural that was painted in downtown Havre de Grace in August 2019. Check out the interview!
