  • Keyhole Gallery Artist of the Month for January: Joey Barkhouse

    The Cedar Keyhole Gallery is proud to announce:
     
    Taking nothing more than the flotsam and jetsam of our native waters and estuaries, Joey Barkhouse has been able to create intricate works of art. A stray rock or piece of driftwood magically transforms into owls or fish. Her carvings and rock paintings have become legend in the area and Joey is willing to work into the night to meet the growing demands of her fans. Ms. Barkhouse will have her latest works on display at the Cedar Keyhole for the entire month of January.
    GALLERY HOURS: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
