Susan Knight Smith, Sally Storey Jones, Coe Steinwart, Laura Smith…four great artists come together to celebrate the “Early Days” in the memorable line-up of work displayed May 10-June 24. The exhibit will reflect the agelessness of a world around us, as artists explore times past and quaint moments that help us to take a step back, worthy of pause.
Come pause with us at the gallery to view the timeless exhibit and celebrate the opening reception on Thursday, May 13, 5-7 pm. The evening will be hosted by Douglasville’s own “Farmer’s Table” who will serve up an old fashioned favorite – ice cream and cobbler.
