Tinman Too opened recently, formerly Ruby Slipper, and the counterpart to owner Sue Bradley's Garland Street arts-oriented businesses.

Next door is Tinman Gallery, itself undergoing a facelift, with a grand (re)opening scheduled for July 30th.

The theme of the reopening is Alice in Wonderland (see post July 29).

Also appearing is their emerging artist series, this month featuring Deanna Camp, Five Mile Prairie in Pastels.

According to Bradley, "We first encountered Deanna when she brought in her Trout Calendars, featuring a series of whimsical watercolors of various trout characters, such as "The Patriot Trout" and "The Grateful Dead Trout." Deanna is an accomplished painter of landscapes as well, both in pastel and in oils. She paints the scenes around her up on Five Mile Prairie, creating a luminous vision out of a familiar landscape."
