December 8 – Cheryl French will demonstrate designing, carving and printing linoleum block prints.
December 15 – Felt maker, Pat Spark, will show how she makes felt version of Scandinavian Gnomes.

After watching the demos, step inside the gallery to see other work by these artists and the 17 other artists.

The New Gallery Calapooia Tote Bag

Gallery Calapooia Tote Bag

Just in time for the holidays, the Gallery Calapooia tote bag is available for purchase in the gallery. All profits from the sale of every bag will go to a special fund established by Gallery Calapooia to provide public art in Albany. Only 100 tote bags have been created for now, so get your own GC tote bag before they’re all gone! You KNOW you need one!

A big Thank You to No Dinx for printing the tote bags!

Here’s an article in today’s Democrat Herald about the Tote Bag and public art project.
Thanks Kyle!
