New Artists at The Gift Shop

The word is getting out that The Gift Shop is a great place for artists to showcase and sell their creations. We now have two new artists: Jeanne Burris-Johnson, and Pete Snodgrass.

Jeanne Burris-Johnson combines photography and acrylics to create her unique cards.

Jeanne has also brought us the original art piece that the above card was copied from. It is a large
(30"x 40") painting that is very striking!

Pete Snodgrass has brought us his watercolor cards and prints. Here are just three of his hand-painted cards.

Cards painted by Pete Snodgrass (SNOD).
Pete also has created very nice wood desk-sets that each include a set of pens, pen holders, and a clock.

(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.)

Just a reminder: Cards make great framed pieces...just right for small spaces, or in groupings.

When you visit The Gift Shop don't forget to see our latest exhibits.  Student & Faculty Exhibition 2016  in the Community Gallery on the second floor through Aug. 31. Members' Exhibition 2016 is in the main floor galleries through Aug. 26. Vote for your favorite piece of artwork from the "Members" show (voting is open to all).
