WVAG Episode one. ChandraLyn

This is the episode that is going to air on Public access beginning the week of July 22nd. I have not gotten exact air times yet but I will have them soon and will post them to the blog as soon as I hear them

I originally had a Screen with the show in here but it turns out that YouTube only allows 10 minute shows and this is 27 minutes so........
I guess we'll have to watch it on TV!!

Lighter Than Air

Please arrive with your new work from 4:30 to 6pm. Remember that the doors are locked at 6pm and that we need to be very quiet since patients are still being seen at 4:30.

As usual, we need helpers to take down the art, help with check-in and hang the new art. If you have helped before, you know the drill; if not we will teach you. Call me (715-297-4779) or Christine (715- 571-1320) if you can help.

Thanks ...... Sharon
