42 west arts co-op
Every Friday is Wine Down Friday at 42 West Arts, and this Friday the tradition continues starting at 5:00. The past few Saturdays painter Donna Bingaman has been teaching a painting class from 1-3 pm, in our new rear studio area, which is undergoing renovations. Please stop in, and be sure to visit the other galleries nearby which include Gallery 50 and Gallery 20 East, and the Ceramic Arts Center of Waynesboro and the Contemporary School of the Arts and Gallery.
The Co-Op is excited to announce the addition of its newest member, jewelry artisan, Jennifer Caldwell. In the years since she began creating jewelry as a teenager, Caldwell has developed a passion for transforming silver sheet metal and wire into interesting shapes and designs. She also adds gems and carbochons to her work for the purpose of color and effect.
Anyone visiting 42 West ARTS in the coming weeks is encouraged to look for Caldwell’s collection of pendants, chains, rings, earrings and bracelets.
