We, at the gallery, are having a wonderful holiday season and certainly hope all of you are also.
We still have a a generous array of gifts that range from artist made ornaments and cards to small paintings and other very special small gifts that are reasonably priced for Christmas giving. Shopping at our gallery gives you the opportunity to buy a gift for someone special on your list, a gift that cannot be found anyplace else.

While at the gallery, you will have the opportunity to see the work of the two newest artists to join our group. They are Gail Rogers and Ann Spoon, both oil painters. For this occasion, they and our other gallery artists have painted several small Christmas themed pieces that will become a part of a lucky someones Christmas tradition.

Come visit our gallery to shop, visit, and see what we have planned for the coming year. There will be new classes, workshops, and fun events. We will be open late Thursday, Dec. 17, until 8 p.m. Our regular hours are 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

Party Time

Our Opening Reception "Chocolate and Champagne" was a night to remember. Lots of interested art collectors and friends stopped by. We have many small wonderful works of art for the month of December created just for you by our gallery artists and invited friends. Stop by soon for unique handmade gifts for everyone on your list. From stocking stuffers to show stoppers. We have a wish list, layaway plans, and extremely low prices right now. Maybe a gift certificate would suit your favorite person.

Congratulations to all who won door prizes last night!

You're never too young (or old) to paint!

What a treat to have my multi-talented sis-in-law and nephew Jude visit me at the gallery today! It seems that we have budding artists in the family, and so it was a perfect opportunity to get messy together - even mom got in the action. We learned a little about technique, drawing shapes, animals, experimenting with color, using our imagination and just having FUN! We even painted each other when we saw how much we were getting "in" to the medium. Despite the improvised trashbag artist smock, Jude and I managed to paint our sleeves too.

What do you think of our circus train? Jude made sure we remembered the monkeys...they had to ride on top of the train though.
