Cooperative Gallery 213 celebrates 20 years with a retrospective exhibit. Artists Mary Rose Griffin and Judy Salton talk about how a kitchen table discussion about art in Binghamton, with comments about scraping gum off a ceiling, led to a vibrant art gallery on a formerly run-down block, that is now the home to other arts enterprises, restaurants, coffee shop, a gluten-free bakery, and even a “speak-easy.”
