On May 24, Sawmill River Arts Gallery members had a fun day in the spring sunshine demonstrating their fine art and craft. As people strolled through the Bookmill complex, they talked with Joan Levy as she carved gourds and Sharon Loehr-Lapan as she painted illustrations and watercolors.

Lana Fiala demonstrated how she makes her own recipe for herbal balms and offered a sample to anyone passing by. Over on the stone patio overlooking the mill’s rapidly rushing waterfall, Roy Mansur helped visitors to get a view of what he sees when photographing still life flowers through mottled glass.

Kathy Litchfield also showed visitors how she twists handwoven scarf fringes to get a neat, knotted finish.

A fun day was had by all and next spring, members will again gather to share their processes with art and craft lovers alike!

Don’t worry, if you missed it, we’ll do it again next May!

Meanwhile, stop by the gallery for your summer gift giving (including for yourself!)

New art includes stained glass window hangings, new bracelets and jewelry selections, paintings and lightweight scarves.

Hope to see you soon!
