Art Evolution on the East End of Allentown: Ceramics by Leeann Catanzaro at Indigo Art, Found Metal by Richard Rockford and Robert Then at Gallery TGW

There has been a lot of recent activity among the storefronts around Allen and Franklin St. Café 59 crossed from the NW corner to the SW corner. East End Salon disappeared. Indigo Art crossed the street and moved into the larger space of the former salon. After a clothing boutique moved out of 497 Franklin, artist David Vitrano claimed the space for TGW Gallery. Vitrano was a member of a cooperative gallery on the same block 50 years ago. Not all storefronts in that area are as transient. Patricia’s, a colorful curiosity shop, has been on the east end block of Allen St. for 30 years.
