Dates to Mark on Your Calendar:
July 21st will be our exchange with the artists to pass on writing and receive the artwork to interpret.
October 8th, Second Saturday, will be an event (4:30-6:00)held at the Artists Co-op (now at a new facility—wheelchair accessible) to see the artwork paired with writing displayed in the gallery. This wine and hors d’oeuvres event is open to the public, so you’ll bring family and friends (and an hors d’oeuvre) to see your work and meet the artist.
