The opening reception for our Friends and Family Show will be Friday, April 20 from 6 pm-9 pm. This year, opening night festivities are being held in conjunction with the Grand Opening of Scrap Thrift at 5 pm. The Gallery opening is also the official kick-off for DIY Fest on Saturday, April 21st. The celebration will include free refreshments, free art making and music by the Bulltown Strutters!
