Sale Sunshine

Clockwise from top left: Stephen Veach, Cory Ballis, Amy Morgan, Craig Easter

It was a wet morning when members got up on sale day last Saturday. Looking north there was a break in the clouds, so with trademark perseverance, members showed up with work and displays to what turned out to be a beautifully sunny day for our 30th Annual Sale. Thanks to everyone who came to support our Fall Sale and good luck to those who filled out a slip for a chance to win the $100. gift certificate, good at our Spring Sale.
If you couldn't make the sale and want a reminder so you won't miss the next one,  contact us here
to be put on the mailing list. See you on May 8th 2011.

Check back here as we compile a list of members hosting open studios for the holidays and galleries where you
can find their work.
