Music will be provided by “Dan Jam” Dan Phillips and Company, hits from the ’70s. The upstairs Annex will feature  “Emerging Artist” Veronica Campos-Hallstrom. Refreshments will be served.

Kathleen Dentinger works with paint and additive. Her work often includes textures built of sand, paper, and found objects. All her paintings employ color that invokes happiness and joy.

Nicole Pierre enjoys working in and exploring various mediums and styles. She has been commissioned to do portraits, pet portraits, and a variety of landscapes. Some of her newest works are abstract and mixed media.

Paula Hissett, “Our Weaver,” works in a combination of fiber arts, including, but not limited to, weaving, dyeing and knitting.
