Sidney gallery wonders whodunnit

On the morning of Tivoli Gallery’s 28th anniversary in late March, someone left a print leaning up against the entryway of the Sidney store

Inga Michel and Wendy Lopez of Tivoli Gallery in Sidney are wondering who left this print at their doorstep.

On the morning of Tivoli Gallery’s 28th anniversary in late March, someone left a print leaning up against the entryway of the Sidney store.

“I want to know who did it,” said gallery owner Inga Michel, who has had Tivoli since it opened its doors almost three decades ago.

The print was left anonymously and is an artistic rendering, featuring the word ‘Tivoli’. Michel, who is of Dutch descent, said it is a Dutch painting and it was painted in 1985 — the year her gallery opened.

“We are just not sure who left it here.”

She and co-worker Wendy Lopez would love to find out who the generous donor is.

They have left a note in the gallery’s window on Beacon Avenue in Sidney, thanking them for the gift.
