From the Edge of Spring, 2015

The leaves are wiggling into the light and the buds are about to pop as we send this out. We thought it would never come, and we could only watch in awe and wonder at this new thing which lay before us. We wept and laughed and it was glorious. The wretched, overlong winter faded into a blissful state of blessed relief and now we can’t help but ask; Is this a good time for another art opening at the Chapterhouse? Thankfully the answer is: HELL YES. So please come out and join us this Friday to bask in the warm glow of these two new artists: JEFFY THOMAS & APRIL KUHN. Quench your hungers with delicious wine and snacks. Gaze upon the beauty and unsurpassed skill of these warriors of modern art. Bring a towel because you are going to bathe in the light of a new dawn of awesomeness.
