Still More Jewelry!

I have shared with you some of the lovely earrings, bracelets, and necklaces here at The Gift Shop. You can also choose sets of  necklaces with matching earrings/bracelets. Most can still be purchased separately, but I think you will agree that having a perfect match can be a big plus!

These are just a few examples of what we have. Contributing artists are: Elaine Kolodziej, Jeanne Krause, Marje Stormont, and Nancy Garcia.

We had a really wonderful talk this past Sunday from a fellow artist and volunteer at The Anton Art Center, Jan Dolland, about the "Gee's Bend" quilters. These African-American women, most in their 80's, have been crafting quilts their whole lives. Some of their beautiful work is on display thru September 8 in the upstairs Community Gallery. A must-see exhibit! Marvel at their work, and their fascinating  history.
