The Art Quilt Exhibit and Sale at Springfield Artworks has been extended until June 25 due to it's popularity.  Margie Trembley, co-owner of Springfield Artworks said the response has been great.  "People walk in the door of our gallery and say "Wow".  That makes it all worthwhile."

 Later in the year "A Touch of Japan," an exhibit of all things Japanese will be hosted by Springfield Artworks.  "Our interest in this fascinating country and it's people has made it possible for us to showcase some lovely Japanese pieces and photographs."

 lasses continue at the gallery throughout the Spring and Summer months.  If you don't see a class that you are interested in, just ask us.  We can arrange to schedule just what you are looking for.

 There will be almost no interruptions at the Gallery during the construction on Main Street. Sidewalk will be always available for our customers.
