compliment to have Gloria in our Gallery and I’m thrilled we are able to host this vibrant show.
To sit, breath and feel the emotion and movement in Gloria’s work is equal to meditation! As
COVID restrictions are slowly lifting I’m equally excited we are able to offer a reception, meetthe-renowned artist. Looking forward to seeing many smiles at On the Hill Gallery throughout the month of April.“
