There will be new works from our gallery artists as well as some exciting new types of artisan wares from new additions to the gallery and emerging artists.

Goddess Tree by Chantelle Flint

" Positive energy and the inner well being are tied to creativity. If you are doing well, creating art from an inner place of wellness radiates through the universe. If you are feeling not well, being creative can be a struggle but releasing through art can help in healing. On my path to being cancer free, my art has grown and expanded. I believe that as an artist, wellness as a whole is tied directly to our creativity. Celebrating Women's Health month and providing a positive atmosphere for the women artists to create, is very personal for me and I hope you enjoy the journey and the wonderful creations"

Lee Kromschroeder 

Stirring moods. Engaging action. Flirtatious light. The art of Lee Kromschroeder captures the imagination of the viewer and pulls him into the animated world of his canvas. "What I like to do is create a total environment for the animal. I feel everything in a painting is equally as important as the subject." Through exhaustive research of his subject's anatomy, behavior & habitat and continually challenging his skills, Kromschroeder has emerged as one of the most recognized and celebrated artists of the genre.
