fleeingThe art has changed at the Corridor Gallery.  We are now featuring the work of Diane Black.  Working in clay, iron, encaustic wax and paint, Diane creates poignant and humorous figures.  The works are whimsical and quirky, celebrating our imperfections, telling a story in every piece.  Join Diane at the Almonte Branch on Saturday, January 17th at 2 pm for a talk and demonstration of her work.  And while you are here take a look at what’s new this week.
