April 14 at 11 a.m, community members, various Shinnston City Council members, and business owners gathered downtown at 223 Pike St. to celebrate the ribbon cutting and grand opening of The Pallet, an art
gallery located above The Press. Bethany Nuzum, curator, for the gallery had the honor of cutting the ribbon to welcome everyone.
According to Mayor Rodney Strait, who attended the ceremony, The Pallet will be a place for visitors to come and see art from Lincoln High School
and residents of the community.
Art displayed on the walls ranges from Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean themed, music artists, abstract,
ink, and more. Ed Mack and Harold Reed were two of the artists featured, and a favorite of several of
the visitors was Ed Mack’s portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow.
