in Action," 2017
"Artists in Action"...is the demonstration series that the VILLAGE
ARTISANS GALLERY sponsors each year starting in the late fall through the
early spring of the following year. The "Artist in Action" for the afternoon sets up a temporary studio in the
gallery where you are invited to be informed and entertained while watching
the artist at work. It's a wonderful opportunity to talk to the artist in
person and see first-hand how their work is created. All of the
demonstrations take place on selected

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm unless otherwise
