Haiku

Our January 2019 guest exhibit on the back wall  is a collection of Haiku by members of the Calligrapher’s Guild. As if creating beautiful calligraphy weren’t enough of a challenge, these talented and creative calligraphers tackle on of the most difficult poetry forms to make gorgeous art for you. Learn more about Haiku in our January exhibit post.

Haiku opens Friday, January 4 and continues each Friday–Sunday through Sunday, February 24. We present two receptions for our January February shows: the first on Saturday, January 5, from 1–3 pm and the second Saturday, February 9 from 12–2 pm. Come and meet the calligraphers!!

Ring in the new year with new art for your collection!

The show opens on Friday, January 4, at 11 am and closes Sunday, February 24 at 5 pm. The gallery is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 am – 5 pm for your viewing and purchasing pleasure.
