Binky and Bell Artists Rick Gardner and Mark Bell collaborate to create original cartoon dog art. Bell, a wood worker, and Gardner, an artist, met in 2013 in a networking group. They fuse their talents into artwork, t-shirts, bags and stickers. Sales support homeless pets. You can support their efforts by stopping by and seeing their exhibit! 

Suhas Tavkar creates fingernail etchings. They originate in an ancient Indian art form, largely lost to our modern-day culture. Not many know this unique practice—and much practice it does take. Tavkar began early in life, at the age of four. He is a master of intricacy and design. His pieces range from written word to floral and scrollwork design. This is a must-see for the art enthusiast, the student, and the casual observer of any age.
