It makes me proud of the community and talent here,” said Ann Warner, co-chair of the show with Sara Nelson and Anne Crawford. “This is our big event of the year. We are looking forward to seeing you. This is the opportunity for many artists to show a body of work. You can have beautiful fine art for your home at reasonable prices.
