“AnTHM is constantly changing as I discover and add the talents of local artists to the gallery,” says Owner Cappi Macsherry. “This reception is an opportunity to celebrate our local artists, both established and emerging, and for the community to enjoy a festive gathering.”

Local artists featured at the event include scarf felter Ruth Duckworth, painter Becky Swann, artisans Ethlyne Davidson, Eileen Hallman, Briar Vapaamies, Holly Mitchell and Alex Rottenberg, photographer Cornelia Katchen, and Melissa Hahn, who makes purses and totes.
