New Lobby Art!
We are excited to display the fiber arts of Mary Frongillo in the GCTV lobby and common areas. The art varies from abstract designs to playful faces in a variety of styles and materials. The art is on display now through December 22, 2021. Please stop by any time during our open hours (M-F, 10am-6pm).
Mary is a scholar, an artist and a great observer of people. Born and raised
