Soon to be Gallery

Within this year, we will be opening the gallery portion of "Studio 165" in Lebanon, Kansas - barring any unforeseen difficulties. Our little house - in the small farming community needs a purpose. We bought it in 2005. We began to make it into a liveable house, then got our wish on the farmstead, so now, we will be finishing it to be a showplace for art...a place to further "self promote".

Just more work to be done, but it is needed. It's just sitting there. Cute? Isn't it? It was built in the turn the century (that's 1904) and was once a Methodist parsonage. The house design is called an American Four Square. We are making plans for it's revival as I write.
BTW - it's one block off the main drag.

How fabulous is that?!?!?

Keeping history alive while painting your future. I love old houses and keeping them current with respect to the past. My little house was built in 1925, but you're gallery sounds wonderful!!

Here's to "This Old House"!

Thanks for the collective encouragement! It will be worth the work. Little Lebanon is in a "state of renewal", so I am doing my part, too! Google - "The Center Foundation". If you can't find it, I will put it on my blog next time.

That's the "U.S. Center Foundation"...
