Sunday…last day of our show…

Sunday,  December 6th is the last day of our botanical art show.  I am so proud of my students and all their lovely work.  If you haven’t had a chance to go, try to get there over the next 3 days.

For all the exhibitors – you can pick up your pieces on Monday from 1-5 or Tuesday and Wednesday from 9-4.

Thanks to all for contributing to a wonderful event! Well done!
