 Annual Members Small Works Show and 35th Annual Crafts Fair

 

 

This show reaches out to the community to display art and gift-giving diversity.  Members join in and we see everything from Bobbie Yokum’s popular stamp art to hand-made ornaments by Suzanne Sandhamwich.  Daphne Gillian will be displaying her whimsical ceramics and Laura Corben will be offering her sensitive watercolors to the show.  

 

There are too many talented people in our town to mention all members participating in the show. Come by the Art Center to see the show and find one-of-a-kind gifts for friends and loved ones.

The show opens on Friday, November 25th, from 9 am until 5 pm.  A chance to meet the artists will be held the following evening, Saturday the 26th between 6 pm and 9 pm.  

 

There will be special extended hours to coincide with the 35th Annual Craft Fair December 9 and 10.

Leslie Campbell's Jewelry Is in the Gift Shop Case
I’ve been a rock hound since early childhood, thanks to my mother. We collected fossils at the beach and amethyst crystals in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Everywhere I travel I come home with a suitcase heavy with stones and shells.These necklaces reflect my love of the colors and variety of earth's treasures.
