Longbranch Gallery reopens after loss of two resident artists

Longbranch Gallery, at 203 Commerce Street in Mineral Point for over 18 years, reopens its doors on Saturday, August 7, the first Gallery Night of 2021.
"The past year has been an extremely sad one with the loss of the creative energy, talent, and good humor of both gallery's resident artists, dear friend and studio mate Tom Kelly and beloved life-partner, Judy Sutcliffe" said Longbranch Gallery owner Sandy Scott.  Judy passed away in March of this year and Tom in June.
"The gallery is privileged to offer a very limited number of signed prints by Tom for this re-opening. And thanks to the generosity of time and organizational skills of Cindy Fleming, Judy's vast collection of art related books will be available for sale." 
Proceeds from the book sales will be contributed to the Sutcliffe Endowment Fund for Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts, created in her honor. For more information on this endowment, please visit
Longbranch Gallery has been closed since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in February of 2020.  When their doors officially re-open on August 7, the gallery will feature a robust collection of new and exciting art work by many familiar artists. Longbranch will also introduce the work of a number of new artists. 
In addition to Tom Kelly's signed prints, art work by local artists will include jewelry by Deb Donaghue, Sharon Stauffer, Lauren Powers, Cindy Fleming, and Pat Snyder; photographs and a thought-provoking new book by Ben Russell; and charming watercolor prints of Mineral Point architecture and gardens by Jennifer Sharp.
Gallery Night hours are 10:00 a.m. til 9:00 p.m. on August 7th.  For more information, visit or call 608-987-4499.
