Father's Day Gifts at The Gift Shop

Father's Day will be here soon. The Gift Shop offers some unique and thoughtful gifts for the men in your life. This week we will feature the wood-work of Ron Cracchiolo, Charles Hall, and Greg Towne.

If you have a fisherman to shop for, Ron Cracchiolo carves, paints, embellishes the most realistic fishing lures.
Fishing lures from Ron Cracchiolo (CRAC).
Joanne Hall's late husband Charles fashioned the most lusterous wooden cutting boards and trivets, combining several different woods in pleasing patterns. We are grateful that she has continued his partnership with The Gift Shop.

Here is a "Lazy Susan" created by Charles Hall (HALL).

Greg Towne is another of our very talented wood artists. Greg combines various woods, then skillfully carves each piece.

Coasters and goblets from Greg Towne (TOW).
(Remember, the letters in parentheses after each artist's name show their code. When you see that code on work in The Gift Shop, you will know who created it.)

It's not too soon to start looking for that perfect gift for him.

So much is happening now that the weather is cooperating!
Anton Art Center has two exhibits in their galleries. "The Art of the Dance" featuring the work from members of The Mount Clemens Art Assoc., Lakeside Palette Club of St. Clair Shores, and the Warren Tri-County Fine Arts Assoc. is open now in our second floor gallery.
"Soliloquy" featuring the art of the Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors, opens Tuesday May 31.
AND... The Mount Clemens Art Fair is June 4th and 5th.

Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day, and remember to Thank A Vet!
