Fusion exhibit to aid Jervis library opens Thursday


On Thursday, June 3, from 5 to 7 p.m., The Photo Shoppe and Fusion Art & Gift Gallery, 8584 Turin Road, will hold an opening reception for its sale to support Jervis Public Library.  Organizers report that all items for sale have been donated, and the full sale price will go to Jervis Public Library.  

Maria and Alan Ringlund report that the gallery is usually home to a photography show in June, which couldn’t be planned due to the unknown status of COVID restrictions.  Instead, they decided to hold a sale that would run the month of June to support Jervis Public Library.  Because restrictions have been eased, they are pleased to be able to host an opening reception, featuring sweets donated by The Franklin.

“This support form the business community comes at a crucial time for Jervis Library,” reported Library Director Lisa Matte.  “We are preparing to expand service hours and to roll out summer reading programs for all ages.  This event provides financial support to help us do that and gives us an additional venue to spread the word about activities that will be coming back to the library soon.”  She added, “We are grateful to Maria and Alan and are warmed by the long list of supporting businesses and artists who have contributed.”

Numerous businesses, organizations, and individuals have already donated items or gift certificates for the sale, which will run while items last during the month of June.  The list of donors so far includes:
