Volunteers

We are so grateful for the support you have given us through these challenging times during the Covid-19 crisis!

You all have given of yourself, working hard to keep our doors open. You have helped us to take extra precautions in the gallery and gift shop including social distancing,
wearing masks, sanitizing the shop, and adjusting to our new hours and procedures.

Going forward, we will continue to adjust and adapt accordingly with all future decisions about operations following guidelines and keeping our patrons and volunteers safe and healthy.

An extra thank you to the special volunteers that worked consistently every month. Everybody's loyalty and support are important and appreciated at TAG.

Gift Shop News
We thank all TAG volunteers and in particular the core group of volunteers and committee members who have been able to work throughout this past year so the gift shop & gallery could remain open after the initial Spring 2020 closure.
 
We did finish the year with a fantastic holiday season. The “Trees at the Gallery” holiday marketplace event was a great success rewarding the creativity and enthusiasm of the organizing committee. It was wonderful and uplifting to see so many visitors, customers and faithful friends stop in to shop and show their support. 
 
The artist of the month program is still running and will feature the artwork of John Fire, photography in March, Jane Hogan, Acrylics & oils in April, Suzy Mikusevich, oils in May. We are signing up artists for 2022. The TAG/ Warren Library Partnership venue will showcase the art of Casey Dickson, Acrylic Fluid Art through March, and of Katherine Infante, Textiles through Spring 2021.
Everyone is hard at work to ensure that we continue to offer a wide variety of fine arts and crafts created by local artists as well as a pleasant and safe environment to enjoy browsing the gift shop and viewing ongoing exhibits. We are certainly looking forward to a return to full activity. We hope to see very soon all our volunteers’ friendly faces ready to welcome visitors, customers, artists, and students.
We are looking forward to your visit!

TAG Underground Committee

Before the pandemic took over our lives, TAG was experiencing an exciting momentum of growth. Much of that was attributed to the success of the TAG Underground and our educational programming.

Sadly, that momentum came to a screeching halt last March when TAG closed its doors due to the coronavirus. And although, we’ve reopened on a limited basis in the months since and successfully held some events and shows, TAG’s art education classes, including our popular Clay@TAG program, remain on hiatus.

However, to prepare for the safe reopening of the TAG Underground so that classes can resume, both the Education and Building Facilities Committees have come together in a collaborative effort to form a special committee whose primary goals are to further improve the downstairs facility in addition to evaluating and enhancing the Clay@TAG program.

A number of Board members and an army of volunteers have been spending hours behind the scenes cleaning and scrubbing the downstairs area. Equipment that has been sitting idle for the past year is being brought back to life. Test firings of the kilns have been successful. Scrap clay is being recycled in the pug mixer for future class use. Thanks to a COVID Relief Grant, upgrades to the existing HVAC system are in the works which will help improve the air quality throughout both floors of the building. And some exciting changes are being developed for our Clay@TAG program.

So, the next time you find yourself in the downtown Warren area, stop by and check things out for yourself. We’d love to see you!

The Tale of the Holiday Trees at TAG Event

A long, long time ago, January 2020, in a pre-pandemic world, a small group of volunteers had the idea of dressing the TAG gallery and displaying artists’ work that reflected a seasonal theme, thru the year-end holidays. Then, the Covid-19 virus hit, and all event planning came to a sudden halt! As more was learned about living in the epidemic, the idea was conceived to hold an event, adhering to medical and social guidelines, that ensured safety for participants and attendees alike. With renewed purpose and vigor, the committee for planning “Trees at the Gallery” was reborn.

As a hybrid Craft/Art Show, Trees at the Gallery is an exposition, displayed on assorted trees, arranged as a pathway walk through a winter-land forest. Gallery wall space was also made available for the holiday art items. With overhead lighting, reminiscent of the corner Christmas tree sales lot, twenty-two artist/vendors rented tree, and wall spaces, for displaying their creations. Through the last month and a half of 2020, TAG became one of the few places in town to acquire quality, hand-made, holiday gifts and decorations.

With the huge success of this initial “Trees at the Gallery” show, all eyes have begun to look towards the Christmas 2021 holiday season, in anticipation of creating an even greater shopping experience for the TAG family and friends.  If you were unable to enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and ambiance of the 2020 show, please plan to join in the festivities during the 2021 holiday season.
