Coleman Gallery & Galerie Suite
The Coleman Gallery & Galerie Suite is a unique building, only 10 foot-wide, with a beautiful gallery on the first floor and a Parisian-style B&B upstairs. Owner, Vicki Coleman, started the business with her husband, Robert, nine years ago to feature the art of her family. Until that time, Robert was an independent glass blower that worked from home. Now, the vibrant showroom features art from two sons who do glass blowing like their father, another son who does woodworking, a daughter's photography, and Vicki's own mixed media art.
"We want residents of Mount Vernon to visit our shop and learn about glassblowing and other varieties of art. Open up their eyes to the art world, " Coleman said.
Robert passed away two and a half years ago, and eldest son, Sebastian, continues in the family tradition: glassblowing and selling amazing pieces at art shows. "We miss Robert every day, but are surrounded by his beautiful glass, which makes us happy." They want to make other people happy and, in addition to selling pieces at the gallery, Coleman has donated many family pieces to fundraisers in the community. "Mount Vernon is a great place to live and raise a family. We love having people tell us, 'your art makes me smile!'".
