Books, Food and Art and Thanksgiving Comes Early

An opening reception will be held from Noon-2 p.m. The new art in Holly Aloha Jaynes’ exhibit consists primarily of collages, depicting subjects of value and interest to the artist.  Jaynes experiments with a wide variety of media from rust, fabric, ruined photos, images and painted papers, combining different texture, colors, or images to see how an original idea may be transformed to create something totally unexpected, expanding the imagination.
