Open House reception for new artist

An open house reception for our recently acquired artists, Rachel Clearfield and Cathie Fitzjohn will be held Thursday evening, September 11th 5:30 - 7:30 pm @ the Crabtree Creek Gallery, Micaville, NC.

Rachel Clearfield, born in Manchester, England was a self taught child prodigy, composing poetry and illustrating her poems with her beautiful paintings. Her body of work can be viewed in galleries throughout the United States.
The artist calls her present mode of painting "classic visionary" inspired by the legendary masters of the Renaissance.

Cathie Anders Fitzjohn a resident of Leicester, NC has always been passionate about all aspects of art. Since taking her first class in stained glass in 1980 it has been her primary focus. She has designed windows for homes up and down the east coast. Working with glass encompasses all of her favorite things: color, design, and fabrication.

She incorporates fused and painted glass techniques with stained glass windows. She also creates whimsical fused glass and jewelry .
