Etc. Gallery at 1155 National Road in Wheeling announces it’s first anniversary with a “birthday bash” featuring prizes, champagne and birthday cake on Thursday, May 14th from 4:00pm until 7:00pm.


Proprietor Charlotte Karges said, “I can’t believe it’s been a year. I tried to create something unique in Wheeling and I hope I’ve succeeded. I couldn’t be more excited about how the gallery was received last year and I’m looking forward to another year.”


Etc. Gallery represents local artists as well as artists from across the country and Karges’ antiques and auction finds. “I travel a good bit and I’m always on the lookout for new, talented artists. Our next artist reception is June 11th and I’ll be welcoming back Anne Havel, an incredible jeweler and enamellist from Vermont as well as Miami artist Holly Jones who I met in Florida in March. Holly merges art with fashion with her ‘art to wear collection’ and other miscellaneous items. It will be a double trunk show with two, gifted artists.”


“I’m very excited about Etc.’s birthday celebration. It’s a thank you to all my artists and patrons who have made the gallery a special place over the last year. Many of the artists have donated works to be raffled off and it’s going to be a fun event. We’re also discounting everything in the gallery 10% for this special day only.” Karges said.
