Recognizing that creativity enhances the human presence in our world, we support and encourage the artists among us. Each of these persons shares a God-given gift to enrich our life.

This premier juried art exhibit and sale features 30 artists and includes some art work from seven local high schools. More than 1,000 people attend the event each year. All are welcome to meet the artists, enjoy their marvelous creations and consider buying items. Many pieces make wonderful gifts. No entrance fee; donations are appreciated.
