Thomas Fire-1

In response to the Thomas Fire, our next and final exhibit in our present Gallery will be "From Ash To Renewal" January 10th thru Feb. 12th. Karen Browdy has graciously accepted to jury the exhibit.

The INGATHERING will be Wednesday, January 10th, 10-12:30.

Construction on the new building is scheduled shortly after Feb.12th. For the safety and well being of the public we will not be allowed on the Art Center's grounds until remodeling is completed. This will be our last exhibit in the current gallery. The little white house gallery has served us well!

It is not by coincidence we asked Karen to jury the show. Since Karen has been with the Gallery since its inception, it's only fitting she should jury our last show at our current location

We hope you will choose to enter "From Ashes to Renewal".

The very best to you and yours and Happy Holidays!
