Succesful Book Signing!

Josiah, one of our youngest artists, has expanded his talents as an author! Many people were there to sign up and buy Josiah's new book

"Infantry Soldier" at his book signing on August 3rd at the Gallery. Many who have read his book are amazed at his talent and determination. It's a lot of work to write a book and it is even harder to finish the book, edit the book, print the book, and market it.

 

You can buy his book at the Gallery for $10.50. Come into our beautiful Gallery and enjoy the many local artists and their beautiful artwork. It is right in the center of Chiloquin in the Community Center with over 3,000 square feet of art!

This year also suppoerted Tourism but because the Team of people interested in bettering Chiloquin grew to 55 supporters, we wanted to also include the 12 projects this large team of supporters are planning for a better tomorrow for Chiloquin. 

Thank you to all who came to our Dinner and supported us and those who just wanted to donate to our great cause; create a better tomorrow for Chiloquin.
