First Friday: Wood | Metal | Clay | Cloth

Join us for March's First Friday as we highlight the work of four local artisans, each working in a different medium.  The pieces, some of which are decorative, some of which are functional, and many of which are both, represent the value of craftswomanship and attention to detail.
