Come Celebrate the Restoration of the Malmgren Garage in Talent and Enjoy an Art Show with Music  –  December 9

The historic Malmgren Garage building at 111 Talent Avenue in Talent was burned to a concrete shell (Picture #1) during the Almeda Fire in the fall of 2020.

The battered structure with its stepped parapet facade has been undergoing a $1.2 million reconstruction.  On December 9, 2023 the restored building will be celebrated by having a Grand Opening Art Show, 10:00am-4:00pm with cellist Daniel Sperry playing from noon-2:00pm.  The public is welcome and encouraged to join us.  Established artists and introducing new artist Rosie Allen Roberson of Ashland will sell and show their work: ceramics, paintings, fabric (wearable art), photography, sculptures, mixed media, books and prints.  Some of the art in the show will be donated to the “Rebuild the Building Fund”.

The re-build is being documented by Mark and Cici Brown, who have captured “The Art of the Fire” in a short documentary. Bonnie Morgan, the owner of the restored building is confident it will be placed on the National List of Historic Places.
