The Greater Good Gallery revitalizes the Isaac Taylor House and Gardens!

With all the events happening around town this weekend, Laura Johnson and I had the chance to stop by New Bern Now’s new physical location at the Isaac Taylor House & Garden and Greater Good Gallery.

Every time I visit, I notice something new! It could be a new art piece in the gallery or something that Mike Lentz has improved upon in the garden!

We really enjoyed visiting with Jim Herring and Lee Wood who were painting “En Plein Air” in front of the building.
