Holiday Greens & “Merry Miniatures”

At the opening reception, Nov. 24, 2019.

This year’s holiday membership show has gone green! Members are exhibiting  1-2 pieces with a holiday theme.
The “Merry Miniatures” exhibit features small works 10” by 10” or smaller. The artworks in the Merry Miniatures Exhibit  are of any subject and do not need to be holiday themed. These small works make great holiday gifts!

People’s Choice Awards will be given out for both exhibits.
