The participating visual artists state:  “All four participants are well versed in the formal aspects of Western European Art but have chosen to move beyond the mechanistic/scientific model of the world to attempt to include more of the human condition in their art.”

Included in the exhibit will be:

See and buy FAIR TRADE gifts from around the world!

Drink hot cocoa and cider!

Munch gingerbread animal cookies!

How hot before you fire your stuff??), etc. You don’t have to buy to have a good time and learn!  A whole different world
