A haven for sculpture collectors offering a behind-the-scenes look "from starting of the clay, to the finished bronze", the gallery will showcase sculptures that share the poignant message of personal reflection.

Lanning Gallery features "Michael Grant: Master Jeweler" who remains one of only a handful of stone-bead cutters practicing the ancient craft today, Grant meticulously hand cuts each stone on a simple lapidary wheel. His necklaces, which on average contain 300 to 800 beads, can take 20 to 200 hours to complete; each one, as with the earrings, cuffs and other jewelry pieces Grant creates, is exquisite beyond compare.

The Angelic Ornaments of Maureen White."  Whether it be a large angel heralding the season or a small dog angel barking for joy, Maureen's creations are sure to bring delight.  Please join us as they raise a cup of cheer to her new works.
