The September SmallWorks Gallery will feature artwork created by siblings, Niikah Hatfield and Aleutian Hatfield. Niikah has explored many forms of art over the years. Drawing, painting, and leather crafting are just some of the forms of expression she delves into.

Both exhibits will be running from August 30 – September 30, with an opening artist reception on Thursday, September 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be provided.
