Dawn Fenwick is our featured artist this month. Her multi-media work is on display from August 6-31. She has included both current works and retrospective pieces in a variety of media both 2-D and 3-D. The retrospective pieces include award winning works and art that people have asked to see again. The current works relate to the earlier pieces in different ways. Come recurring themes with variations she hopes the viewers will find. Dawn hopes her show exemplifies her growth, versatility and evolution as an artist.
