As Cross sets sail with Artlynx Gallery 2.0, – Allie states, “As I consider artists and productofferings for the shop, I am compelled to consider the times we live in and the needsand trends of our market. As many of us consider living a more sustainable lifestyle–I have carefully curated a unique offering here at BSI with artists, designers and artisans who in many ways, address nature and sustainable living in one form or another within their work.”
With a discerning eye for ‘beautiful things’ and a mindful eye on the environment– the retail gallery and boutique will highlight original art and artisanal hand-crafted items for the home.
