Using cut paper which was first painted with acrylic paint, this series juxtaposes songbirds with headlines and pulls quotes from vintage
LIFE magazines to create pieces which are humorous and thought-provoking.

Come have a drink. Bring your artist friends and meet your artist colleagues from around the region at Hat City Kitchen.

The artist salon is the second Monday of every month.
Free admission, half price appetizers, plus drink specials.
