This is a wonderful time to find unique gifts for your own enjoyment or for the special people on your shopping list.
This is your opportunity to talk to the artist whose work you admire and see demonstrations of some of their work. For the tenth year, this artist initiated event invites the visitor into his or her creative space to see what moves them, the type of work they do and of course, to buy some of it..
