Dear Friends,
Did you know many of our members are participating in the ORCAS STUDIO TOUR this year? Take this opportunity to visit their private work setting, watch demonstrations, and purchase art!

Brochures are available at the Center, library, post office, Enzo’s, and many other places around town.

We hope to see you there!
