Saturday Night in Salisbury: Upstairs, Downstairs
On the ground floor of a 19th century colonial with a picket fence in front on Academy Street in Salisbury, Merideth McGregor runs Joie de Livres, a shop selling rare books, fine art and objets d’art, which she’s set up to feel like a literary salon. Her upstairs neighbor is Harney Associates, a real estate agency run by native son John Harney Jr., who is exhibiting paintings by Karen Stone of Lakeville on his office walls for the next few month. On Saturday May 10, the neighbors each gave a cocktail party and their two sets of guests mingled outside as a jazz trio played under Harney Associates’ front porch.
Saloniste Merideth McGregor and photographer Robin Langsdorf; a jazz trio made the openings feel like a block party.
Photographer Benjamin Swett, whose work was being shown at Joie de Livres, and his wife, Katherine; Life coach Brooke Loening and WZKE radio host Sally Spillane.
Artist Karen Stone, who is donating part of the proceeds of her exhibit to the Housatonic Day Care Center, and John Harney Jr. stand in front of one of her paintings.
Chris Nelson with Alexis and Zoe Fedorjaczenko; Pat Best and Chris Morley.
