many thanks for your support!

We really felt the love last week!  

Last Sunday, March 26, we hosted the Elementary Student Art Show and Celebration to standing-room-only crowds. Over 600 people visited in two hours - wow!  It's so fun to see the students' proud faces as they show off their work to parents and grandparents.

And this past Saturday, April 1, we had 16 volunteers show up to help spiff the place up.  Wish we had "before" pictures, especially for the outside of the building!

Volunteers took apart the old boiler, making more creative space.  Our darkroom was cleaned up, organized and pared down - again, making more classroom space.  The sculpture garden and all around the outside was cleaned up, trimmed up and weeded.  The gallery was mopped and polished.  Classrooms were cleaned and organized.  

THANK YOU, volunteers!!

We appreciate our community's support for the arts and our awesome volunteers.  Y'all are the best!

Jaclyn White is a woman of many talents - writer, gardener and jewelry maker! Her works are new in our Gallery Artists' Market and totally worth a visit to see her lovely and unique creations. Each piece is created from actual leaves and flowers -- molded and cast from silver.

She will have a book signing on Saturday, May 13 from 2:30 - 4.

Plus she will teach a "Researching and Writing Non-fiction" workshop on May 16! Want to write your family history ... or a true crime novel (or maybe your family history is a little of both!)? Jaclyn can help you with researching and writing tips!


Some classes are already filling up!
