Our summer 2023 season has almost come to an end. Presently, our gallery is open through Leaf Season on Saturdays from 10-4. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and special events. Here are a few highlights from this summer…..
We introduced our Kids in the Kitchen program on Saturdays and Sundays. The Kids in the Kitchen program provides area children the opportunity to actively participate in actually planning, organizing, creating and executing a business model. It teaches the kids to work together as a team getting experience in the service industry preparing them for the workforce. These kids served lunch in the Courtyard every Saturday from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
GALLERY Our gallery was open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday over summer 2023, representing many area artists. We have artists who represent various mediums including jewelry and glass designers, watercolor, acrylic and oil painters, photographers, pottery and more. We hosted many visitors and tourists over a very successful summer. The pottery and glasswork created by our volunteers in the gallery literally flew off the shelves this summer!
Volunteer Cindy Lynch created a new group called Watercolor Wednesday. This is a group of folks who get together on Wednesday mornings to paint together just for fun. Coffee and smoothies were also available. We also have an occasional lesson or paint project we work on together. We gain insight and inspiration from each other. We plan to continue this group next summer.
STUDIO There were creators welcomed to our studio who also created their own glass and pottery projects with assistance from our volunteers. Remember, our studio is a “no fee” studio, you pay only for materials used. This space is available over the winter by appointment only. We are still welcoming parties by reservation and hosted several groups over the summer. Contact us to help plan your event. Think birthday parties for kids and adults, wine and paint parties, holiday gatherings, etc. Feel free to present us with your ideas!
DIVA NIGHTS We will continue Diva Nights through the fall and in to winter. Keep looking at our Facebook page for dates and times. Event will be created on Facebook. Be sure to follow us there.
CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE On December 9, 2023 we will have the 2nd annual Christmas open house. This event was a huge success last year so Save the Date! Come early for the best selection!
HOME SCHOOL PROGRAM During the 2022-2023 school year we participated with two home schooling groups. We had elementary students, middle school and high school students. We plan to continue this program the 23-24 school year.
KIDS IN THE KITCHEN Over the winter our Kids in the Kitchen program will be starting a soup and bread club. Two homemade soups will be offered along with a bread option. Soup is sold by the quart and punch cards will be issued to work towards free soup. 10 punches/purchases of soup or bread.
