Happy Fair Trade Month!

October is Fair Trade month and we have plenty to celebrate! 

October 8-10, 2010

Artrageous Weekend is here again!  We will be celebrating with festivities on Friday and Saturay. 

Friday night from 6-9 p.m. we are opening the exhibit “Anamnesis” a collection by Renee Reed-Miller.  Her collection explores external elements using organic cues from the natural world. Her ultimate goal is to read the poetry of a universal, human journey.  Through the medium of clay, she seeks to recover what has long been forgotten.  Also on Friday evening, we will be welcoming guest artist, Liliana Morales, who will be doing a Flamenco performance and demonstration with students from the Stephens College dance department.

Saturday, “Anamnesis” will continue throughout the day.  We will be joined by local musician Margaret Waddell  at 11 a.m. for a Children’s Music LessonMargaret will share with us the traditional uses of the fair trade instruments in store and will provide additional demonstrations throughout the day.
