In this day of “objects d’arte” from China and India flooding the market, it’s easy to purchase decorative items for home and office, and much cheaper than a one-of-a-kind article from an individual artist.

For this reason, being recognized for artistic talent is often an elusive occurrence. Fortunately several of our own sculptors were recently honored by a special showing of their work. The exhibit, which opened May 16 in a display window at the CATC building, showed sculptures by Judie Smothers, Liz Katz, Eve Draper, Mary Jo Manchester, Judy Riffle and Jan Marx. Five of the six sculptors are members of Happy Potters. Judy Riffle teaches drawing and painting here.

How fortunate our community is to have so many talented people! Any day of the week those who walk down the halls of the CATC will find a plethora of displays in all its windows. The building has become an arts and crafts gallery with constantly changing exhibits to delight residents and visitors. It’s well worth the drive (or walk)!
