TNLG is moving to Vermont, and Saturday, May 28 is the last "open for business" day at 11 Roxbury St.

The New Leaf Gallery
Yes, things keep changing, and we are closing the retail location in Keene in favor of a set-up on the other side of the Green Mountains, just north of Middlebury (at 1787 Quaker Village Rd., in Weybridge, VT).
Reasons for the move?
- Shipping TNLG print orders will become more efficient as it is from this location that most of the TNLG shipping work is done.
- Much of the focus of our marketing development has become focused online. The 11 Roxbury location, though a wonderful place to be in its spot in downtown Keene, is "too far in the wrong direction" of the main artery of activity of its owner, Matt Brown. The framing and shipping resources of Matt Brown Fine Art, in downtown Lyme, will be able to be more closely integrated with TNLG gallery activity from this new Weybridge location.
- Retail sales at 11 Roxbury St. have not been adequate to cover the rent. This move offers a better chance for the TNLG gallery to become solvent as a business entity.
It will take some time to get the 1787 Weybridge location set up for retail (things will be appointment only for the foreseeable future), but the space is promising as home for a print gallery. Formerly an office space for a tax consulting business, it is in the center of the downtown Quaker Village area of Weybridge, offers good work-spaces, plenty of storage, beautiful views of the Otter Creek river, and a quiet, focused atmosphere.
