Sparta Preview Gallery open


Barbara L. Moncrief and Lynn McClary look at teapots on display at the Preview Gallery.
Sparta’s first ever exhibit of Kamm teapots opened Saturday with a ribbon cutting and brief ceremony.The grand opening launched the Preview Gallery, a renovated downtown storefront where people can get a taste of what’s to come when the Sparta Teapot Museum opens in 2008. The gallery displays about 70 of the renowned Kamm teapots in a museum type setting.“It’s been an incredible response,” said Jonathan Halsey, project manager for the future museum, as guests walked among display cases of teapots from different eras and areas of the world.
The Gallery will be open each Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., operated by volunteers. Admission is free. The phone number is (336) 372-7795.The gallery will remain open at 18 S. Main Street until the Sparta Teapot Museum opens a short distance away on N.C. 18..For more information, see www.spartateapotmuseum.org or call (336) 372-8118.
