To Our Dear Friends and Customers,

We love our artists and we love our customers, but the time has come to say goodbye to A Show of Hands. The snow and ice and the Federal Government shutdown have made the last few months very difficult and left us with no alternative but to close the shop.

Over the almost nine years we have been in business, over 425 artists joined us and we were able to bring you a wonderful array of locally made art. You, our loyal customers, helped make A Show of Hands the place where artists wanted to be. Thank you!

We will still be open until April 15th, and we are hopeful you will stop in before then and get that special piece of art you have been admiring in support of our artists.

We have made many friends, enjoyed many great conversations, and felt honored to bring you this wonderful art from great local artists.

Our sincerest thanks,

Pat and Maria
