The gallery will open Thursday with a grand opening event at 6 p.m. All are welcome to attend.

The gallery’s artists offer an impressive range of original watercolors, oils, drawings, bronze works, encaustic, hand-blown glass and photography. Gallery 1401 offers residential and commercial art consultation, selection, delivery and hanging.

Gallery 1401 will feature openings, exhibits, and special events throughout the year. The gallery will also be open First Fridays starting in October until 8 p.m.

On Thursday, Sept. 25, Gallery 1401 will host British artist Arthur Laidlaw in a solo exhibition of works on paper.
