Return of Spring

Apr 8–24, 2016

We are highlighting the Return of Spring for 3 weeks in April by assembling a broad spectrum of handmade items, all of which celebrate nature in form or function.

The show opens on Friday, April 8 with an Artist’s Reception from 6-8pm. Regular hours continue April 9-24 on Fridays from 12-5pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5pm.
