Local Artists – Your Go-To Place for Gifts

Keep in touch and sign up for our Monthly Newsletter.

Our featured artist for May is Emmy MacKenzie, goldsmith and jeweler.  She made her first lost wax casting piece in a high school art class, but it wasn’t until almost ten years later that she began working professionally as a bench jeweler.   Emmy studied traditional gold smithing techniques in Vancouver Canada.   She  is now a member artist with our gallery and  we are proud to have her as our featured artist this month,  please stop by and see her beautiful jewelry.

As Rebekah Joy Plett wrote, “When you buy from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting or a novel or a song. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy…. You aren’t just buying a thing – you are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone’s life.”

We appreciate your support.
