Slingluff Gallery, which we have previously called “consistently one of the more switched-on, yet off-the-beaten-path … destinations in town,” is packing everything up and moving up to, “a small town in the western Catskills along the upper Delaware River called Callicoon, NY.” In a farewell message, Slingluff said,
There are many reasons as to why we are relocating from Philadelphia, most of all is that we want to feel like we are a part of a community. A town that supports and helps with the building of other small businesses, one that embraces and celebrates the arts, a town where you can be yourself and be happy with who you are. We will never forget Philadelphia and the amazing people that we have met here. Four years of our life has been here, on Girard, it’s all that we really know as a couple. From the good to the bad we have seen it all on Girard. From being spit on by a police officer to seeing muggings, from flowers popping up from the sidewalks to flower boxes being setup, from buildings like the one next to Frankford Hall and behind the gallery going up with no permits posted to all of the great times spent at Egg, it has felt like a life time. Yes, we will never forget Philadelphia and the amazing people that we have met here”
Slingluff will be missed, but if you ever find yourself cruising around the western Catskills stop in and say hi.
