The art in August will be the work of Marcia Rosberg. Of her work, Marcia shares, “I have been making art in various mediums all my life. These paintings are creations that exhibit my affinity to nature and the wilderness. I am drawn to the solitude and the mystery of the forest and the breathtaking beauty of flower blooms and all growing forms of nature and life.” Please stop in to enjoy the work Marcia has generously shared with us.
