The upstairs gallery is being renovated!

All the art work has been moved from the two rooms upstairs and the painters have been busy. New carpet is being installed next. It will be great. Give us a couple more days and we will be ready to welcome everyone upstairs again.

Here are some photos of the work crew and the non usable classroom. The classroom is a maze of artwork and Gallery furniture! The best is yet to come.

St. Valentine is believed to have been a Roman priest who was martyred on February 14 around 270. How he became the patron saint of lovers remains a mystery, but one theory is that the Church used the day of St. Valentine’s martyrdom in an attempt to Christianize the old Roman Lupercallia, a pagan festival held around the middle of February.

In the late 1300s, we begin to find the first clear references to a tradition relating February 14, St. Valentine’s Day, to romantic love. Poems were composed for the event, the earliest being Chaucer’s Parliament of Fowls(c.1381), about rival bird-suitors quarreling on Valentine‘s Day. The first Valentine’s Day cards were handmade, but by the early nineteenth century, printed cards were common in England. When this fashion was exported to the United States in the 1840s, a veritable Valentine mania broke out.
