Fiber, sculptures, prints, oil paintings and photographs are a few of the artistic mediums featured throughout this exhibit.

The series will launch on Thursday, October 17 starting with an interview with Pat Eure, discussing the work of Glenn Eure. The series will continue with different features throughout the year.
