Lots of art to see

We all brought a lots of art for the exhibit, so much that there wasn’t space for it all! Exhibit Director, Kathleen Garrett, did a wonderful job of arranging the show, and having breathing space is key to enjoy the work. Her choice of groupings just belong together. That said some of our works are in the gallery storage.

Here are a few of mine you can ask to see…
