GRAVERS LANE GALLERY
RE-OPENS SATURDAY JUNE 13
Preparations have been underway and we are safely re-opening our doors this Saturday, June 13th. I’m still trying to grasp this concept of our “new normal.” I miss your smiles; I miss your amazing social hugs – we could all use a little “connectivity” these days. We are saddened by the loss of many fine people from a pandemic that should have been contained. We are heartbroken by the incomprehensible loss of lives, lives extinguished by hands choosing ignorance and hate. The glass house has been shattered. We have much work to do together to rebuild a better house. We can only hope that with resistance and time the stones thrown abrade to pebbles, the pebbles become sand and we are privileged to walk side by side on clean beaches breathing fresh air. Looking forward to seeing you back in the gallery to celebrate John Rais’ work – Connectivity – during our abbreviated hours, or by private appointment.
Gravers Lane Gallery
JOHN J. RAIS
Nationally recognized Metalsmith, John J. Rais is known
for his imaginative, masterful architectural designs and elegant objects, sculpture and furniture designed
for home and garden. His current body of work explores the fragile connections we have to nature and to each other.
A must see exhibition. John J. Rais “Connectivity” will run through June 13th – August 15, 2020.
Unfortunately, we cannot host a large crowd public opening. We will have posted public hours and private appointments can be arranged. John is also available to meet for consultations for possible commissions.
FIBER EXHIBITION – EXTENDED

This spectacular Fiber exhibition was originally scheduled to open March 12th just as we were ordered to close our doors. Through social media we reached out to many enthusiastic collectors and placed some wonderful work. We are extending une exposition d’arts obsessionels de la fibre at Gravers Lane Gallery through July.
