We are in the final days of summer, but that doesn't mean we need to stop having fun! We are a proud sponsor and sponsored site for this year's JP Open Studios, but before you experience everything Open Studios has to offer, come down to our office on Thursday, September 7th from 5-7:30 pm for a sneak preview and the First Thursday Art Walk! We are welcoming mixed media artist, Danene Elise, back to our space for her second show with us. Her colorful and vibrant pieces will be up all month long and she is our featured artist for Open Studios.
