Weekly/Monthly Events

Celebrate 10 Years of Flow July 24th through August 15th Opening Reception Friday, July 24th, 5:30 - 7:30

Flow is excited to be celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a Member Show. Come to Flow to see the lovely, new work of the six current and six former members (aka owners). Each piece was made especially for this show to commemorate this accomplishment. The show opening is Friday from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Please note that Flow requires masks to enter the store and limits the number of people in the shop to 10 at any time. Unfortunately, offering food and drink conflicts with safety measures so we decided not to offer any refreshments for this opening. The show will remain up until Saturday, August 15th. Our current store hours are Thursday thru Saturday from 12:30 to 5:00 pm or by appointment.
