Buffie Finkel 
Art Quilts and Acrylic Paintings
"I have painted most of my life and dabbled in many other mediums as well.  Painting has been my go-to medium for most of my life, especially when the subject is one of my three children playing in the mud, or picking a flower—and the light hits them just right-- I cannot resist capturing this.  I discovered Art Quilting about 10 years ago and found it satisfied both my desire for expression as well as my love of puzzles! I joined Splash Gallery in 2017, and absolutely love the group of talented artists there, plus the opportunity to create and sell my art quilts on the open market! I have committed to making my art quilts from only “found” materials—no more buying new fabric. So, my art evolves. It’s a personal statement, for now, but I know more is to be revealed." 

Also on display will be original art by our very own Hands On preschool students! You can check out their artwork on April 26 from 5:30-7 p.m. or anytime on April 27.
