Ok, one last time, the countdown to the June 5 Art in the Afternoon event! This is the last date in the series (phew!) and just so you know, I saved the best for last! These artists are the cream of the crop in my opinion. I cannot WAIT to see some of these works in person. So here's the first featured artist, Helen Ferguson Crawford, who happens to be on the postcard that is distributed all over town too. Her work is certainly a feast for the eyes, and her use of color is so rich and full of complex layers, absolutely delicious!
