Comment by Glen Guarino on July 17, 2012 at 1:18pm

Congratulations to all the artists, we were totally blown away by your work.  This was a difficult show to curate, we had so many fantastic submissions, but after lots & lots of coffee we made our final selections. You all are incredibly talented!!! Thank you for allowing us to show your work. Glen & Marie

We want to thank all artists who submitted for Small Treasures 2, sadly we could not set up a show for all 114 pieces. Each and every piece was spectacular making our task of curating very difficult.  Thank you !!!!

Elena: Rhonda Uppington is not a crafthaus member - though she should be, of course :-). Our online exhibitions are open to everyone, they are not restricted to crafthaus members.
