Expressions Gallery: Oh My Gourd

This amazing headdress artwork is made out of gourd.

It’s time again to shout out Oh My Gourd—shortened to OMG in the Creek. Can you imagine the skill involved to create a headdress out of gourd? Initially I thought it was fiber, but the artist arrived by happenstance as I was taking a picture and told me he purchases the gourds he needs for this type of piece in California. Just amazing workmanship!

Taking the time to tour the Creative Arts Center is just like touring a museum. The level of craftsmanship is outstanding. The showcase windows highlight the craft of the wood carvers, painters, fiber artists, pottery and ceramic artisans, jewelry makers, paper crafters, and glass workers. Not everything that is showcased is for sale, but it is all fantastic to gaze upon.

In the Gallery and Gift Shop, everything is for sale. We’re pleased when you support the work of your neighbors and friends. There are lots of new items for you this summer. We are now carrying clothes for Barbie dolls as well as the American Girl dolls. We also have wearable art for babies and adults. Come in and find your style.
