Local Bolton Landing residents Tim & Beth Tiger purchased the gallery in the heart of town in the spring of 2017, after artist Lorrie Coffey gifted these stunning works and their rights to the Tigers' non-profit, Durga Tree International. The artist asked that the angelic artwork be used to help support the organization's Bloom ProgramTM, a collaborative educational and economic empowerment program for human trafficking survivors.
As co-founders of Durga Tree and long time supporters of Coffey's work, they are passionate about sharing the angel sanctuary space with the public. The location was intentionally chosen to create a new home for the angels for various reasons, one being that the waters of Lake George have always been known to have healing and rejuvenating properties. Add to that the fact that the town of Bolton Landing, although appearing as a small hamlet on the shores of the lake, is a vibrant, heart centered community that the Tigers fell in love with over a decade ago. They've spent summers in the town, were married at the Sagamore resort, own multiple properties, and have plans in place to eventually retire here as they move their focus fully to the works of Durga Tree.
In the words of Beth, “this is a very special place where people can come by and sit among these gorgeous pieces and experience their healing energies. Healed and empowered people heal and empower people, so our hope is to share this uplifting energy with others, who will in turn take that energy out into the world and do good works."
