Gallery benefit a huge success

The Through the Eye of a Needle benefit evening for the Station House Gallery held at Beeotcheese on July 8 was a huge success, says gallery manager Diane Toop.
She says the event raised about $4,200 for the gallery, just shy of a month’s operating costs.
“Beeotcheese was full of people who support the gallery and we thank them for attending this very worthwhile evening and making it so successful,” says Toop, who extends thanks to all of the businesses, community clubs and individuals who helped to sponsor the event.
She extends a special thanks to Marilyn Dickson who conceived the event and put the Common Threads summer exhibition at the gallery together with her husband Barry.
The Common Threads exhibition of hand-crafted fabrics and clothing from cultures around the world which filled the gallery during July and August gave the financially struggling gallery a huge boost in visitors, Toop says.
