Over 70 juried artists exhibit artworks ranging from original paintings in oil, acrylic, encaustic, pastel, pottery, ceramic, raku, woodturning, glass and jewellery. There is something for every taste and every budget (maybe let mom pick her own gift this year?) Pictured Below: A work by Kathleen Thorson a painter living in Port Colborne Ontario.
