Blue Cloud Gallery is announcing that Melissa McTernan is the winner of a raffle that took place over the holidays.

Blue Cloud Gallery is happy to announce Melissa McTernan as the winner of the $100 shopping spree raffle. Owner Betsy Lenora ran the contest during the month of December. McTernan filled out a form when she stopped into the store to buy an Illuminations Tour ticket sponsored by the Somerville Arts Council. The winner was pulled earlier this month.

McTernan, a Somerville resident, was thrilled when she was informed she had won. “Stopping by to claim her prize, she could barely contain her excitement about all the choices she could make,” Lenora said, “She allowed herself plenty of time to consider the possibilities. I wondered if she'd choose one big item or lots of smaller ones. Melissa chose somewhere in the middle.” McTernan left with her hands full. She chose a paper collaged mirror and a frame by Lyn Brown, a Somerville artist, as well as a pretty soft blue glazed vase by another Somerville artist, Peter Grams.

“She graciously allowed the remaining $3 to stay in the store. It made me feel happy knowing how much fun she had,” Lenora said.

Despite a lovely collection of handcrafted gifts and art for sale, Blue Cloud Gallery is more than just a craft gallery and gift store. Lenora encourages customers to come to the store to learn more about local crafts and local art, and overall support the local art community, “We all deserve a treat from Blue Cloud Gallery. Consider the last time you gave yourself one, then come in and gift yourself for a change!”
