All Month:

Belinda Chlouber-Words & Paint – A Collaboration with Family Writings, Postal Plaza Gallery, 720 S. Husband.  This exhibition is inspired by Belinda Chlouber’s family poetry and writings.  The artwork reflects the artist’s long time interest in the senses, communication, and how we interact with artwork.  Through script, thread, and paint, Chlouber strives to re-weave the past and demonstrates its current, otherwise unseen, persistence in the present.  Her mixed media acrylic paintings utilize textures from fabrics, machine embroidery/stitching, and monoprints.  Chlouber loves to explore “traditional” women’s crafts, as she feels it reflects and connects deeply with the historical role of women.  Chlouber often works with many layers so that when the work is examined closely, half hidden images are unearthed.  Free and open to the public.

Main St.  Add a whole new flavor with our refillable Balsamic Vinegars.  Buy either the Strawberry or Plum condiment flavors for just $10.95 with bottle and condiment.  Refill our Greek balsamic condiments from our special fustis in the store for just $7.95.  With our Ariston award-winning olive oil, our display of refillable oils and vinegars is truly unique.  Come sample these items in the store and join the large number of our customers who have discovered these entirely new flavors.
