WHY THE NAME FIVESPOON GALLERY

  • Onespoon Galley was our first sail boat. She was so small, we said she could only hold one spoon in her galley. Five sailboats later, Fivespoon Galley was big enough to hold five spoons around her table! A lot of productive time was spent creating small works of art while we enjoyed time on the water. As the amount of art expanded, the living area below deck became known as The Gallery.  So Fivespoon Gallery will always mean a joyful place to create and show art!
