Hello reader reader,
It may be the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer but Sequoia Gallery + Studios is busy planning some fun summertime shows and events. Just a reminder, Sequoia will be closed on July 4th due to Independence Day. Like you, we will be celebrating with our friends and families. But never fear, we will be hanging a new show in the gallery this month featuring new works by two of our members: Barbara Mason and Laura Wilson. The artist’s reception will be on Saturday, July 15th from noon to 2 pm. So come meet the artists and also visit with our other members and studio artists.

On the same day, July 15th, we will also be participating in Celebrate Hillsboro from 9 am to 4 pm. Look for our children’s crafts booth on the courthouse lawn. We also bring you more workshops in our series of “Paint Your Masterpiece”. Scroll down to read about other workshops to brighten your summer. So, if you are finding your summer days a little too lazy…we have lots of fun in store for you!
