The Y Gallery

Y Gallery In a town of interesting facades, this has to be one of the most unusual. It's listed online as:

Y Gallery
12th & Exchange
Artist Jim Russell/Vintage Bike Works

Y GalleryI know nothing about it except that it seems to be a private affair, or maybe by invitation only. It's located in a building that used to be the YMCA. I'll show you the marking on the corner someday. I thought I read that the building was spared by the 1922 fire and was used as triage during that event, but (again, trying to remember) I think there is a date of 1923 on the corner. Maybe someone will comment.

Y Gallery Part of the building's charm is this window on 12th Street.

It sure must have an interesting story. The colors suggest something artistic.

... the entrance looks intriguing. The colors help.

I remember that building. Yes, that was the YMCA. I learned to swim there and in high school taught swimming. Glad to see it's not sitting empty.

Oh I like the entrance. I wish we'd be more adventurous here and have a bit of colour.

Very interesting. The facade looks rather plain, but those columns are so colorful!
