Newgate Mission’s Gallery Night from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. June 27 will feature the art work of Ruby Floyd. Floyd, who died in May, was a frequent visitor to the mission and well known around Longview as a fan of the Lobos who cheerfully rode her bike around the city.
Gallery Night also will highlight the recent work of other Newgate artists made as part of the Healing Art Project, which is led by local artist Anup Bhandari. Art work and crafts by Newgate clients will be for sale. The book “The Faces of Newgate,” which features portraits Bhandari made of Newgate clients, also will be for sale. Sales benefit the mission.
The mission is located at 207 S. Mobberly Ave. in Longview.
