Thornebrook Gallery celebrates 30th anniversary (The Alligator, Wednesday, August 31, 2011)

If you’re a customer of the Thornebrook Gallery, Tricia Fisher probably knows you.

The gallery manager knows if your mother’s ears aren’t pierced or if she prefers long, dangling earrings. She knows where your brother goes to school, if your dad’s knife collection could use an update and whether you prefer abstract paintings or nature scenes.

If gallery owner David Arrighi orders a piece Fisher thinks you’d like, she’ll give you a personal phone call.

Originally opened in 1981 by two UF alumni as a framing shop, it is this sense of intimacy and friendliness that has kept the Thornebrook Gallery alive for 30 years – a milestone which the gallery will celebrate throughout the month of September.
