LOVELEE ~ Functional art by Sara Nafus
All of the art created are items that have been "up-cycled" and given new life. Materials used by the artist include wooden furniture, doors, jars, pots, jewelry, scrap wood, yarn, and a variety of paper and fabric.
The artist reception is 2-5pm Saturday, February 4, 2012. Meet the artist and enjoy refreshments.
The exhibit runs February 3 – 29, 2012, and is available for viewing before any regularly scheduled performance.

In honor of the artist’s mother, Lee Nafus, Houchin Blood Bank will be on site accepting donations during the reception.
A note from the artist:
"I have incorporated my mom, Lee Nafus, in this exhibit because I would love so much to give her credit. I believe that the way I look at the world and the way that I make my art has everything to do with the heart that she has given me.
My mom passed away in 2006 from a brain aneurysm. Before she left us, she was given the aid of four blood transfusions. It is because of this that I greatly appreciate those who donate blood. I ask, if at all possible, that you give blood in honor of all the beautiful hearts out there, and especially that of Lee Nafus.
