Tea time at the art gallery
During a day best spent lavishing time and love on mom, Sara Muller of Grand Junction couldn’t pass up the combination of art and tea at the Blue Pig Gallery in Palisade.
The mother of two boys, ages 1 and 3, first enjoyed a brunch with her mother, Judy Muller, at Spoons Bistro & Bakery, 3090B N. 12th St., before the two headed out to peruse the work of local artists at the gallery.
“We both love art, and we both love tea,” Sara said, happy being able to mesh the two.
Judy Muller was visiting from Oregon specifically for Mother’s Day and to savor some time with her daughter and grandchildren.
The mother and daughter combo said they were impressed to be able to meet some of the artists who were on hand Sunday.
“I love local artists,” Judy said.
Gallery Director Kay Crane said she and local artist Dianna Fritzler decided months ago to host a Mother’s Day event to get folks in the doors.
With the cooperation of balmy spring temperatures, mother-daughter groups arrived throughout the day. Some munched on tiny cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off and sipped mint tea.
“We thought it would be a nice thing to serve our mothers,” Crane said.
