New work in the store

February 1, 2017 ~~ Gallery members are constantly bringing in new work to refresh their displays. Dedicated artists can't seem to stop producing art. And, of course, artworks regularly sell, creating holes to fill. These are some of the new items gracing our store:

Leanne Kelly enhances gourds and makes pine needle baskets. She recently added a gourd lamp and some tiny gourd pots.
