On Saturday the art galleries have scheduled unveilings that take you through the town, and that evening beginning at 6pm, artist's receptions will be held at each gallery. A complete weekend schedule of unveilings and previews can be seen on www.cbgallerygroup.com (see Schedule at end of article)

Come and explore the wonderful fanciful worlds created by artist Mike Smith. An influential artist both nationally and internationally, he began sculpting and drawing as a child. Mike received a degree in English Literature from the University of Portland, taught briefly, and then became committed to developing his art on a professional level. His early work was abstract, but Mike soon abandoned schools of art and developed his unique, colorful style which has subsequently influenced other artists. His work contains worldwide themes and ideas, but the focus of his painting and sculpture remains the hill where he lives. In his thirty plus year career, he has had almost 100 solo exhibitions of his work which includes watercolor, oil, acrylic, bronze, ceramic, and printmaking.
