Spring for Art Celebrates the Blossoming of Millerton
Eclectic, eccentric and electric are all adjectives one could use to describe Millerton’s Spring for Art evening on May 1, when nearly every business in town—from Elyse Harney Real Estate and Gilmor Glass to Little Gates & Company and the Motorworks—exhibited work by local artists, and served wine and cheese. The warm weather contributed to the street-party atmosphere as giddy merchants anitcipated a busy summer season now that Millerton has evolved—to the shock and delight of many who’ve been around town for more than a decade—into a day-trip destination.
