Stephanie Stouffer's 'Holiday Legacy'
November 17 - December 31, 2017
Holiday Event: Wednesday, December 6, from 2-8pm

The feelings of joy, warmth, peace, and love are something we all equate with the holiday season. Freelance illustrator Stephanie Stouffer is known for bringing those feelings to holiday imagery you've likely seen on Caspari cards, napkins, wrapping paper, plates, and other products. We have become a great supporter of this talented artist, and are presenting a special holiday exhibit of the her original paintings and commercial products displaying her designs. ‘Holiday Legacy' is a testament to the legacy Stouffer has created during her 35 year career.
