Featured Artist - Harry Hannah


Harry is a fairly new member of the gallery and a welcome addition with his enthusiasm. His work is whimsical and makes one smile when they look at it. He also carves out wall hangings for the home or office as a  nice accent piece. Come by and take a look. We can all use a smile now and again!!


Amazon Smile donates 5% of your purchases to A3L if you designate us as your Smile donation recipient.  It's that easy and it costs you nothing! This is all year, not just Holidays:-)
