Michele Tuegel was the highly regarded and much beloved first director of the Florida Craftsmen Gallery and is a fiber artist. Her new gallery features her work as well as that of others and is located half-way between Beach Drive and the 600 block.

There were several quilts by Eleanor Mc Cain, whose work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. The one shown on the left greeted gallery visitors as they came in.

Here is another quilt by the same artist, with a square portion of the center that reverses the background checkerboard pattern. It is titled "Moss" and is a beautiful object.

Looking around the gallery I ran into several of Josette Urso's works.

Above is a view of part of the gallery. It is presently a good mix between decorative high craft and and fine art works. I feel safe in speaking for myself and the art community in welcoming Michele Tuegel Contemporary Galllery and in wishing her and her crew the best of luck.
The gallery is located at 320 Central Ave. St Pete.
