Spring greetings from the Gilley! We are open during the month of May on Friday, Saturday and Sundays from 10 am until 4 pm, with last new entry to the galleries at 3:30. It was a pleasure welcoming members and friends from near and far to the Spring Open House and Carving Show on May 5th. Pay us a virtual visit on Facebook if you can't be here in person and be sure to "Like" the Gilley while you browse to stay in touch with current happenings.
