November 19, 2015 – Southington, CT Connecticut’s 54 year old, homegrown furniture store, Pilgrim Furniture & Mattress City is opening an art gallery for local Connecticut artists. The “Start With The Art Gallery” is a project that is close to the hearts of the Mike & Debbie Albert, storeowners. Their daughter, Katie Mack has painted many murals in their stores, around the town of Southington and around the world. The Albert’s understand how hard it is for artists to support themselves with their art and have devoted 75 feet of showroom wall space to display professional art from the local Connecticut community. “We will hold a quarterly event where each artist is showcased and a piece of their art will be used to demonstrate how to put a room setting together by ….”starting with the art”, stated Debbie Albert. “We are thrilled that our first event will feature Southington artist, Marjorie Low an oil and acrylic painter along with photographer John Munno from Southbury, CT. Both are professional artists and represent some of the finest work that the state of Connecticut has to offer.”
Nationally recognized showroom designer, Tony Moretti will be demonstrating the steps used to create a great look for your home. The artists will be on hand to speak about their inspiration, techniques and different types of art medium.
