Sally Griffin Center Exhibit through May 4,2020

The reception for the artists who are currently exhibiting at the Sally Griffin Center was a success. Although you will not be able to see the show now that the “Shelter in Place” mandate is required, we thought that you might enjoy seeing some photos of the various artists works on display.

Deanna DeChauron, Emily Hull-Parsons, Bobbie Belvel, Rita Sturgen are all talented artists. We are hoping that the Center will reopen in April for you to enjoy the exhibit. Most work is for sale, a percentage of a sale goes directly to the Meals on Wheels program. If you see something in one of these photos that you may want to buy, please contact Jan Scott at 831.373.2019.
