A Med City artist is gearing up to launch a new, small shop this holiday season.

Cassandra Buck, the founder and president of Gallery 24, is preparing to open Clover & Rose at her northwest Rochester home. She hopes to the open the doors at 2403 Viking Drive NW on Nov. 23, Black Friday.

While Buck still works with the Gallery 24 artist collective she helped start in 2017, Clover & Rose is a separate project.

“It is a solo project. I’m still the president of Gallery 24 and doing things with that. But I decided it was time to create a space for my side projects, like jewelry, embroidery and my love for vintage items,” wrote Buck about Clover & Rose. “I want to keep it separate from my fine art.”

The boutique shop, which will have its own entrance, will carry handmade jewelry, clothing and bags as well as curated vintage finds.

Gallery 24, which was located at 324 First Ave. SW in Rochester’s downtown, closed that space earlier this year to clear the way for a future development on that site.

While the Gallery 24 artist collective is seeking a new home, its artists are displaying their work in other local shops, including the Goodness Gallery in southwest Rochester.
