Cooper and Morgan Lanza, the mother-daughter duo who started Tillie Lace Gallery and School of Fine Art in April 2016, have decided to change the name of their multi-faceted art space to Cooper Lanza Gallery. “We received a lot of feedback from people that contributed to our decision,” said Morgan. “But, really, I think it’s important for Cooper to claim her space in the art world by putting her name out there. She is the Artistic Director of the space, teaches all of our fine art classes and curates the gallery … And she’s got a great name! To me, it just makes more sense.”
Cooper Lanza Gallery will continue to offer painting and drawing classes, live music and events, as well as the fine art gallery. The gallery is still located at 1415 13th St. in Fairhaven.
Along with the name change comes new gallery hours! Starting in March, the gallery will be open to the public on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2:30 – 6:00 p.m. and Sundays from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. Cooper and Morgan are often in the space teaching classes and working with students, so if you see the “Open” sign on, feel free to stop in!
