~~~~TAOS - EAST~~~~


Artist's reception, Friday, June 17, 6:30-8:30 p.m.




See the works of nine different artists from Baldwin City, Paola, Overland


Park and Shawnee, with works reminiscent of the artist's haven of Taos,  


New Mexico. We will present paintings and photographs from Sandy  


Cardens, Christy Carlisle, Verna Crane, Paul Knapp, Jacqui Lichius, Bobbi


Sharbutt, Dawn Thomas and Sharron Spence and pottery by Sandy Tugman.


These are primarily artists who spent a week in Taos in 2015 painting and


photographing together. A few of these artists have been going to the same


painting retreat for over twenty years. We are also delighted to add Sandy


Tugman's New Mexico inspired pottery to the show!
