 Please join us on Friday, September 13 from 6 – 8 pm to celebrate local artist Marguerite Schaffron! The title of show is THE MIND’S IMAGINATION and features a spectacular mixed media blend of photography and painting. The exhibit encourages the viewer’s imagination to explore what it sees in Marguerite’s unique art.

While earning her BA in art from UCD Marguerite was known as the “dumpster diver” – raiding the large, steel boxes of discarded art projects and other goodies. She knew they contained objects that could, and would, live again. Through these adventures Marguerite discovered the reflective, pliable nature of Mylar and it became key to her photography. After graduating in 2001, her life of re-purposing discarded objects continued. Be it the fruit of a dumpster dive or the discarded paint, wooden tennis rackets and clothes discovered at thrift stores. There is no limit to her imagination!

Come join us for a beautiful and unique art experience!
