Owner of Sally’s Hair To Dye For, Sally Gibson, has been painting the town of Preston for the past few years. She’s always loved painting her salon window, and other business owners began to take notice.
So, she has shared her passion, creativity and talent with the rest of the community at businesses like Trout City Brewing and Al Larson & Sons, just to new a few. For each business, she takes into consideration the nature of their business and what they provide to the community, and then she often includes some element of nature or recreation. For example, the City of Preston is known for trout fishing, so that has been incorporated into many of Sally’s window paintings. She also takes into consideration the season, such as spring, fall, and Christmas.
More communities are turning to window art to decorate the town on a seasonal basis. The businesses in Harmony, Minn., have put on quite a window display, as well.
Sally can be reached at her salon at (507) 765-4773.
