Done for now

We are no longer organizing art exhibits.  Many thanks to those of you who came to enjoy our lovely displays of artwork by local artists.  Perhaps in the future there will be a new incarnation. Int he mean time, live with art – it’s good for you (this is a quote by someone else – I’ll admit that it’s not mine!).
