Times Are Tough Gallery, a
tiny (10’x11’) fine arts and craft venue, is the brainchild of
owner/curator Pia Hogue. As a working artist she says, “I love
the camaraderie of shows.” So when Hogue saw that the markets
where she and her fellow artists sold their work were closed
due to Covid, she decided to help by opening a gallery. “These
are my friends, these are great people and they are hurting”.
The DeBlois Gallery offered Times Are Tough Gallery their space in Middletown for the month of February to give them the opportunity to spread out and showcase even more local art. All agree that the team-up was a resounding success!
