We're Back

Due to technical difficulties, our blog was out of commission for awhile, but now we're ready to post lots of new stuff and new activities coming up for the rest of the summer.

July featured artists at the Short Term:
 Deb Otterstein
Don Gray 

And a peaceful, zen garden window display featuring work by Mary Sue Rightmire:
We're open daily and having lots of company this summer. A special  feature as part of the Crossroads "Persistance in Clay" art show events in town is a Coffee Art Break at the Short Term every Wednesday morning at 10:30.  Free coffee and free talk - with some of your favorite interesting artists taking a break to discuss the joys and challeneges of creativity.

For the Miner's Jubilee Juuly 20-21, Tom Novak will be set up on the sidewalk doing caricatures.

August 4th is "Chalk It Up" day with artists creating chalk art works on Main Street sidewalks.

Wow...it does feel nice to have escaped temporary internet oblivion and be back sharing great art!
