This show will run January 21 – March 7, accentuated by a one-day Folk Arts Festival on February 29. We've invited local artists to fill our 1,400 square foot Ayres Associates Gallery with art for the weeks wrapping around the Folk Arts Festival. This is the time of the year when color, whimsy, and warm thoughts are most needed.
