Joanne Shank and Ray Zdonek's Exhibit, Update and Upcoming Classes

Spring is here.

Joanne Shank's exhibit is lovely!  She definitely has a way with the iris flower.  I am enjoying re-reading Ray Zdonek's poems and the images Joanne has created for his forthcoming chapbook, "The Moon Speaks in Silver".  The exhibit can be seen in the Wellness Arts Cafe through May 31st.

The seasonings released this winter continue to be well received.  The seasoning list now includes:
L.A.O.'s - Herbal Seasoning,  Everything plus Popcorn Seasoning, Curry and Garam Masala.  There is some experimentation being done with rubs and when we get caught up with other things on the list, they will be released.  Click here to see one of Joanne's images on the Cafe Calendar
