Celebration April 21

High Street Studio & Gallery to close

Apr 14, 2017
Belfast’s High Street Studio & Gallery is pictured its first year; Susan Tobey White said she remembers someone had given her a red hibiscus because “you should always have red in a window as it will draw people.”

Belfast — After 15 years, the doors of High Street Studio & Gallery, 149 High St., will be closing Saturday, April 22. Artist/owner Susan Tobey White will host a closing celebration Friday, April 21, from 5 to 7 p.m. to thank everyone who helped make the High Street years a success.

The gallery, which has been advertised as “a gallery to make you smile,” has been venue for showing White’s work as well as others through out the years.

The artist said she will continue to teach workshops at venues to be determined, will be teaching at Fiber College in September and is hoping to spend a lot of time painting.

The community is encouraged to stop by the downtown gallery Friday evening. For more information about the artist, visit susantobeywhite.com; those who want to be alerted of upcoming workshops and new work are invited to join her mailing list.

Dancers at local venues have long been a favorite subject of Belfast painter Susan Tobey White; pictured is “Girls Night Out.”
