Pegasus Gallery Re-Opening June 16, 2006

Jun 16 2006 to Jun 17 2006

The long awaited Grand Re-opening of the Gallery! Established in 1972, Pegasus Gallery has slowly grown to a destination for islanders and off-islanders alike. The June 16th event, (roughly 6 months in the planning)was attended by hundreds and hundreds of people from noon - 11:00pm (when things finally wound down). Thank you to the caterers, the media, and the Mayberrys, Sarginsons, Sigvaldasons and especially to the ARTISTS for all your hard work in making the event such a smashing success!
