  • Rena Vandewater, a nationally renowned oil painter with a wealth of experience, brings us on a trip abroad, through Europe and Great Britain, via her fantastical memory of land and cityscapes. Her paintings are vibrant and fresh with a color palate that brings a sense of joy, and in essence an ecstatic naturalism.
  • Chris Halley, an innovative metal artist, uses mysterious techniques to create his powerful sculptures that exude a sense of dignity and strength while their beauty fills the eyes with fascination. It is with wonder that Chris makes metal look like glass or pottery puzzling the mind about his process.  

Crossroads is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the First Friday show opening continuing until 8 p.m. each month.
