AIR Featured Artists Brighten Gray November!
The Artist in Residence (AIR), a cooperative gallery, is delighted to brighten the gray month of November with the fine art of Harald Aksdal and Debra Kiel. The public is invited to a reception at the gallery (Main Street, Enosburg Falls) on Sunday, November 1, 2015, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. The artists will share and discuss their recent work.

We hope 14th Star Brewery will join us once again as well.
