The December Bette Buzz

What are you thankful for at this time of year?
 

At the Frank Bette Center for the Arts, we are thankful for the many volunteers who have shared their time, creativity, and most of all commitment to preserving our community gallery.  In the past few months alone, we hung 3  shows, organized two artist receptions, set up a popup weekend Guatemalan market, and decorated the holiday Boutique.  So many thanks and good cheer to those special helpers who made these projects possible:

Ginnie Chabre:  Satellite gallery curator and community ambassador.

Genie Scott and Patricia Edith:  Signature gallery curators.
Pierette Moore-  Guatemalan coordinator, reception hostess, and gallery minder.
Adele Aced, Nancy Brandt, Andrea Bishop. Elaine Blood-Golden,  Sandi Adams:  Exhibit layout and installation.
Paul Feinberg, Charlie Lucke, Ron Miller:  Exhibit installation.
Genie Scott and Kris Warrenburg:  Graphics
Regular gallery minders: Nan Gray, Patricia Prinz, Lowell Brook, Patricia Edith, BZ Meyers, Marianne Mock, Tatiana Secu and Alyx Morgan.

The gallery has been transformed for the holidays.

We are featuring affordable, one-of-a-kind jewelry, mosaics, ceramics, paper arts, fiber arts, paintings and wood art.  Come visit soon.
