Using an old or new blank paper journal with only a few pages, we can make it together into an inspirational piece for many uses - to give to Mom, keep for your self, or as a gift to a special friend. We will decorate on the cover and inside pages.

With February’s gift of abundant snow just beginning to loosen its grip, many of us are experiencing a hankering for just a bit of green. We look forward with great anticipation for our members to fill the gallery with their interpretations of this theme. From soft greens to green patinas to a luscious verdant green, this show will be an explosion that will thrust us happily into Spring. Consider the many alternative modes of green .... recycled, found objects, re-purposed objects made into art.
We honor two of our favorite sculptors this month. The amazing birds created by Barbara Moon will be on display. Barbara works her special magic with large and small pieces of driftwood and other beach “finds” to give us wonderfully detailed and elegant shorebirds. In addition, the animal sculptures of Dennis Glidden will also be prominently exhibited. Dennis is another master of creat- ing art from recycled and repurposed everyday objects. His gift is to transform tools into imaginative and humorous creatures(see above) from dinosaurs to snakes. Their distinct personalities will bring smiles to all who see them.

NEW SHOW OPENING APRIL 6th, SHAPESThe theme for April is a playful one. Shapes are the focus. We will welcome art that highlights particular or unique shapes or forms that strike your fancy. Or pieces that invite us to find their underlying shapes. They can be geometric, biomorphic, organic, ink blots, blobs and such. ( My committee gave me such a vocabulary!) Shapes as nature displays them or as your imagination builds with them. This description is not meant to suggest limits but to encourage you to be free. Be serious or whimsical. In any medium. Surprise and delight us. Artists can drop off work on April 2 and 3, 4-6PM.
