The last hurrah for The Artist’s Loft

Founder William Hays calls it quits after 225 Gallery Walks

BRATTLEBORO — The Artist's Loft has overlooked Main Street for almost 25 years. Friday, April 3, will be the last Gallery Walk for William Hays' gallery and studio.

Hays opened The Artist's Loft Gallery and studio in June 1990. Although initially the gallery showed the works of a variety of artists, in 1995 the gallery began presenting only Hays' work.

In 1995, the first Gallery Walk was launched by Sally Fegley, Greg Worden, Patricia Long, and William Hays.

“Gallery Walk became much more than I anticipated,” Hays said. “So many years of regular operation is wonderful testimony to the vitality of the visual arts community and those who support us.”

After more than 225 Gallery Walks, this will be the last for The Artist's Loft.

Hays has been working in linocut prints exclusively for the past three years. He will continue to show his work in more than 20 galleries throughout the northeast states.

In Brattleboro, Hays will show his artwork downtown at Gallery In The Woods at 145 Main St. Owners Dante and Suzanne Corsano have known the artist and his work for many years.
