We are happy to announce our February show,
an interpretation of LOVE
by some of Valise collective members and their guests.
We hope to create some needed light in the middle of our dark winter,
and to share some beautiful, interesting
and affordable art, all about love.

Art work featured here by Rachel LordKenaga, Blue Caban, Jennifer Hawke and Terri Fletcher
This show is our favorite. At the end of summer, we provide every artist in the collective with twenty or more 5" x 5" squares of bare fine grade plywood, and we each come up with very different ways of treating these surfaces. It is always a wonderful surprise to see new approaches, new techniques and new ideas emerge.
The images range from Lin Holley's Cats with Pussy Hats to surprising and wonderful new work by Michelle Friars and Jennifer Hawks among others.
These small works are uniformly priced at a very affordable $65.00 and our followers love to come and chose their favorites, either as presents for the holidays or just to add to their own collections. We recommend that you come early for the opening because our discerning supporters quickly make their selection.
It is also a fun party! We are looking forward to seeing you.
The opening is Friday November 3 from 6 to 9
