Right around the corner, Mei Drucker will be displaying her newest line of abstract paintings.

Continue south to Village Books where employee Dave Sjostedt will be showing his photographs. Sjostedt discovered photography with the advent of the digital camera. He purchased his first camera, a 2 megapixel compact, 10 years ago which he has taken on many remote hikes in our area.

Across the street, new participant Sereni-tea is hosting jeweler Jane Rothenberg. Rothenberg uses natural elements and gemstones, as well as copper and brass in her handcrafted designs. She is inspired by the infinite forms, colors and textures of the mineral kingdom and natural world.

Alpine Originals is excited to have Clarann Bjers of Glass Elegance showing off her infused and lampwork glass, which she has recently been incorporating into her mixed media pieces, adding a new dimension to her creativity.
