Please join us at the Weyrich Gallery as we begin to glaze fire our porcelain works ‘offsetting’ our energy use with the sun using solar energy.  Looking forward to the future and the impact on climate from our creative efforts has lead us to a shift in consciousness with our creative processes.  We have researched glazes suitable for our new approach to firing and hope you will enjoy our efforts. We are just beginning a new direction and new path forward in this legacy of porcelain. Show runs through November 30, 2021.

First Friday ARTScrawl, Friday November 5 (5-8pm)
11am-6pm daily through November 29th

Ghostwolf Gallery brings you the wild and wonky surrealistic stylings of artist Laura Wacha! Laura is an award-winning artist and Local Treasure.

She states:

I create my strangely humorous images to make some sense of the schism of being a modern human here on earth: to have some control, to glean some amusement, or sometimes simply to help decide what I think about it all. If my flamboyantly colored images of outlandish and grotesque characters interacting in odd landscapes appear simultaneously familiar and fantastic, it is because they are ultimately about the mundanely surreal narratives of workaday life and global strife that are all around us.
