The Attic Gallery to hold its annual Open House in December

Published 6:52 pm Friday, November 17, 2023

Lesley Silver and The Attic Gallery will host a variety of artists at the gallery’s open house on Dec. 10.

Silver has been hosting the open house for more than 20 years, and she joked that she’s not sure if people come for the art or the gumbo served to patrons. “I feel it’s a little bit of both,” she said.

Several local artists will be on hand for the event, which takes place from 1 to 5 p.m.
