About Galleria 126

Galleria 126 is perfectly placed inside the historic Samuel Straub Home. Built in approximately 1855, the building holds a sense of mystery and accomplishment that can only be found in historic structures. The original moldings are intact; the Mercer Moravian tile around the fireplace highlights the luxury of the home; wrought iron rails line the welcoming front porch. Every detail, down to elaborate metal grates that cover the radiators, is part of the character of the Galleria. The Galleria is outfitted with heirloom furniture to display the works of regional artists exploring paint, leather, glass, textiles, ink and words.

Galleria 126 is the culmination of decades of artistic pursuits and community involvement of Denise Tucker and Russell Lerch. Their own work, through RaptorArts, LLC, is found throughout the Galleria in paintings, charcoal and pen and ink work by Lerch. A back kitchen serves as a workshop for Tucker’s current obsession of repurposing furniture and accessories.

Buoyed by the positive energy that is spilling along a renaissance in this quiet borough, Galleria 126 is a central piece of a dynamic movement along Chestnut Street in Bath that is invigorating the area with commerce, supporting independent artists and business owners, recapturing the historic facade of the area and attracting attention from visitors out of the area.
