An art destination in the making

MALONE — MaLo is a SoHo in the making for three Malone women — Jeanne Norris, Jeanne Danforth and Julia Holmes — and the North of Adirondack Arts Council.

“We’re a small group of artists,” Norris said. “We’re three women partners, and we have artists in the council with us. We wanted to set up a place where the artists of the northern Adirondack region could display their art in a regular gallery setting.”

The Main Street Art Gallery is located at 465 E. Main St. in the Richardson Building in Malone.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

“We have 18 artists on display,” Norris said. “We have a waiting list of a half-dozen more. The 18 artists include some of the biggest artists of the area, such as Charlie King, Pam May and Anne Ray.”

The council organized in July.

“We’ve been working since then,” Norris said. “There are two other small galleries in Malone right now, For Arts Sake (7 W. Main St.) and Pouring Lights Studios & Gallery (432 E. Main St.). We’re trying to make Malone an artist- and art-friendly place. When another gallery opens up, we’re going to open also. People can walk in downtown Malone and see art in several places in the area.”

Michael C. Hart’s photography exhibition, “Slip Time,” opens Friday evening at Pouring Light.

“We’re going to have our first event Friday night from 6 to 8,” Norris said.

“Michael is not showing in our gallery right now. He’s been to our opening event and has been enthusiastic about it and encouraging. We all can cooperate to make Malone an art destination,” Norris said.

The Main Street Gallery’s signage simply says “Art.”
