Dear Susan,

This past weekend saw the opening of our newest exhibit in the pottery studio, S*H*E* Project by Anda Stelian, as well as the first of three performances in our Storytelling Series. The storytelling was wonderful- a testament to the hard work of coordinator Anna Mueser. The next one is on Saturday, August 6th, at 7 PM and is, again, free to the community. Please join us for this and all the other exciting things we’ve got in store!
Danielle Newell, Executive Director The Smithy Pioneer Gallery, Inc.
