The featured art show this month will be a retrospective on childhood entitled: "When I Was A Child – Toys and Playtime”. Tanja Softic, Professor of Art and Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Richmond has juried this all-media show. Artwork in this exhibit is for sale and gallery proceeds go to providing art supplies for Blackwell Elementary School’s art program.
