The EAT Gallery: A Maysville Landmark Reinvented
Owners Simon and Laurie Watt hope to inspire others to reinvent Maysville's downtown historic district through the juxtaposition of the old and the new. Original sign, new heart.
From their web site:
The EAT Gallery features jewelry from four goldsmiths from around America and one from Germany. All items of jewelry are one-of-a-kind and are hand fabricated in gold and platinum with colored gemstones and pearls. There are also some wonderful natural gemstone beads in necklaces.
There is also an incredible array of hand carvings in stone. One piece which portrays a family of rhinocerouses took approximately 500 days to complete and weighs in excess of 300lbs. All around the gallery you will also find sparkling mineral specimens of Citrine and Amethyst from the mines of South America and fossils from the Atlas mountains of Morocco.
The grand opening of the gallery at 46 West Second Street will begin with a party tonight (Thursday) from 6 pm to 9 pm. Coinciding their opening artfully with the Rosemary Clooney Festival, the gallery will also be open throughout the weekend from 11 am to 6 pm.
