A new favorite, Karen Hoback will be back with her abstract high quality silk painted scarves and other clothing items. Local pottery instructors, Craig Corey and Debbie Hagen, will have their latest work exhibited as well as several local jewelry craftsmen displaying their creations.
Noted fabric artist, Eleanor Beckert, is scheduled to be present and will be displaying new southwest themed fabric hangings. Artist/author, Dotty Fenner, will be on hand to sign her recently published book of poetry and drawings. The students from the ABC Park Art Center will be showing and selling their handmade Christmas cards. Free drawings for art and craft items donated by the artisans will be held each day.
