Our “Winter in the Whites” exhibit, featuring the work of Rebecca M. Fullerton, Daryl Hawk, Michele Johnsen, and Chris Whiton, is on display and looking glorious!

For those of you who live far away (or those who like to hunker down and hibernate come winter), don’t despair; you can still see the show from home. First step: view the “Winter in the Whites” look book on our website. Each piece in the look book has a link to our online store, so if you see a piece you love, snatch it up quick!

Second? Attend our virtual artist opening and reception this Friday at 6pm.
