Fairy House Workshop with Les Polinko

Allegory Gallery has invited the very talented artist and author, Les Polinko, to teach in Ligonier this weekend.  This Pittsburgh-based artist works primarily with polymer clay to create fantastical characters and creatures.  Working with magical themes, her work is often compared to Jim Henson and Wendy Froud.  This Sunday, August 2nd, Les will be showing participants how to create this charming Fairy House.  The workshop takes place between noon and 4PM and will be conducted at Main Exhibit Gallery's new Lower Level Art Center.  The class costs $45 and includes both instruction and all materials!  To find out more and to sign-up online, CLICK HERE.  You can also call Allegory Gallery to RSVP (724-610-3770) or stop in and sign-up in person.  Don't delay, space is limited!

If you can't make it to class, you can still meet the artist during a Meet-and-Greet Reception at Allegory Gallery from 6PM to 8PM.  This event is free and open to the public.  Allegory Gallery is located at 215 East Main Street.  We hope you can join us!
