Times Are Tough Gallery
at DeBlois Gallery

"Times are Tough Gallery", a tiny (10x11’) fine art and craft venue, is the brainchild of owner/curator Pia Hogue. When the markets where she and her fellow artists could sell their work closed due to COVID-19, Hogue decided to help by opening a gallery. "These are my friends, these are great people, they are hurting." The DeBlois Gallery offered our gallery space for the month of February to give “Times are Tough Gallery” the opportunity to spread out and feature even more local art. Now it's the FINAL WEEK OF A LIVELY AND SUPER-SUCCESSFUL SHOW! February 27th is the last day!

Coming in March:

Explorations are DeBlois artist Manjula Padmanabhan's insightful musings inspired by art works in our gallery. Manjula, an accomplished artist, illustrator, and author, considers these brief observations to be appreciations, rather than critiques. As you browse through the online gallery, look for the Explore button. And feel free to email us your own explorations in the same vein!

Our regular gallery hours  in February 2021 are:

Monday - Wednesday: Closed;
day- Sunday: 1 pm - 5 pm

We welcome you to our popular gift shop, stocked with unique offerings from local and international artists and artisans, during our gallery hours.

We practice all recommended safety measures, ensuring that proper distancing is observed, with limited groups of visitors in the gallery at any one time.
