Winter is frequently thought of as a time of year when things slow down, but not for our artisans. Right now two Village Artisans have work hanging in galleries around the area.
Current member, Scott Stolsenberg has teamed up with fellow photographer and former Village Artisan member, Talitha Greene for an exhibit called Through The Lens. Their photography will be on display through March in the Glen Helen Atrium Gallery.
Pete Mitas once again has had a piece chosen for the 25th Annual Dayton Area Works on Paper. You may recall that a couple of years ago Pete took home a prize for his piece in this show. This year's Works on Paper exhibit will be on display through February 27th at the Rosewood Arts Center.
