Lots of Upcoming Events

This Friday, in conjunction with the Northampton Art Walk, I'll be at Valley Hands demonstrating glass beadmaking and selling my wares. Come on by.

Watch Art Develop at Valley Hands
Fri Sept 11 4-8pm
Wine, Snacks & Artists Creating!

A fun and creative way to spend Friday evening.
Meet the artists, pull up a chair & Watch Art Develop right before your eyes!
This month's feature artists include:
Annie Bissett ~ a Northampton based artist and freelance illustrator, began learning the techniques of Japanese woodblock (moku hanga) in 2005 and has devoted herself to printmaking since then. Come watch her work and create!
Colleen Blackard ~ Northampton. My art is meant to share my experience of the universe. I'm creating the absence of light in order to form light using familiar materieals. Come and watch the process unfold!
Katie Richardson - Belchertown. I work primarily in glass and metal, though I enjoy experimenting with other materials, too. I'm inspired by nature, people's stories and struggles and the process of making. I hope to enrich people's lives with beautiful and functional objects that delight the eye and remind people of creativity in human nature. Come and be dazzled!
