"Artists in Action"...are
demonstrations and trunk shows where the visiting artist sets up a temporary
studio and display of their work in the gallery. You are invited to be
informed and entertained while watching the artist at work and see their
latest creations. It's a wonderful opportunity to talk to the artist in
person and see first-hand how their work is created.
Peruse their latest creations and find that irresistible piece of the work they've brought in!
