Ms. Hynson has been painting most of her life and is still going strong even after a recent illness. So stop in and give her a hand for a job well done!

Across the street on Hawthorn St., Pottery by Hand is featuring their resident artists who are all ready to celebrate the New Year with lots of artistic pieces on sale, such as mosaics, stained glass and much more for your viewing pleasure.
