New and Coming!

Featured Artist, Reception and Call for Entry

Our current Featured AAFC Consignment Artist is artist Larry McGough. Larry specializes in digital art but has recently begun experimenting with the art of paper quilling. Paper quilling uses lengths of thin paper twisted and twirled into shapes and glued to a mat board. For Larry, there is a bond between the two very different media that is created with the similar shapes and designs. Check out Larry’s video on YouTube and then stop by the shop to see his beautiful work first hand. Larry will have a table set up this Friday at the How Do You See God? Reception.

Speaking of which, make sure you come visit us on Friday Aug. 21, 3-7 pm for our 3rd Friday Reception and Parking Lot Art Party #3. This is the Book Signing Reception for the How Do You See God? Exhibit. We have a limited number of books available, so call before Friday to pay and reserve your book 719-265-6694. What ever is left will be for sale at the reception. We have about 12 artist tables going to be set up in the parking lot:
