Banana Tree Studios

You may recall that we mentioned the opening of a new artist's gallery in the Old Tobacco Factory on Electric Avenue of Flemingsburg back in March. It's called Banana Tree Studios (See: New Art Studio Opens in Flemingsburg from our March 2006 issue) and they appear to be in full swing with an ever expanding calendar of events.

Today (June 25th) from 6 to 7 pm, they will be hosting "5th Salon", a social gathering of artists. All artists (and the general public I'd imagine) are invited to come to the social gathering. Coming up on June 27th, 6 to 7 pm, guest speaker E. B. Lewis, illustrator of children’s books, such as “The Bat Boy & His Violin,” “Sometime My Mommy Gets Angry,” and “The Otherside,” will be holding a lecture at the studio.

Gallery Hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 am to 4 pm or by appointment. Classes in ceramics and painting are available.

Banana Tree Studios, 121 East Electric Ave., Flemingsburg. Check them out. For more information call (606) 845-7408 or (606) 356-1356 or e-mail .
