Still more ideas for Father's Day

Here at The Gift Shop we have even more gift ideas for Father's Day.
This week I will highlight the work of artists Barbara and James Rudis, Robert Gilchrist, Audrey Long, Esther Schuldt, and Kimberly Kirkpatrick.

James Rudis and his late wife Barbara have created some wonderful mosaics. This large piece is fashioned from genuine Southwest Mesquite wood, mirrors, turquoise gem chips, and copper. It makes a very bold statement!

Does your man/men enjoy a big cup of coffee or tea? We have some hefty-sized ceramic mugs created by several of our clay artists.
Here are two mugs made by Robert Gilchrist. He uses some really interesting glazes on his work.

Kimberly Kirkpatrick and Audrey Long are two of our imaginative, and prolific potters. Pictured are mugs from these clay artists. Each one just right for that morning "Cuppa".

Esther Schuldt has just brought in some new designs of her popular magnifiers and letter openers. They would look great on his desk, or yours!

(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.)

While you are here at The Gift Shop be sure to take a look at our latest exhibits here at Anton Art Center. "The Art of  Dance" is currently showing in the 2nd floor Community Gallery (with the opening reception on Saturday June 18 at 1pm), and "Soliloquy" is in the main galleries. Don't miss these shows each featuring local artists.
