We joined the First Friday Art Stroll for the first time.

For the first time we joined the First Friday Art Stroll and it was so much fun!  Here are a few of paintings on display inside our store.

Check out what the Standard Examiner had to say aboutthe Art Box, "Art Box, 215 25th St., is a recently opened gift store and art studio. The store carries holiday and seasonal items, as well as pillows, books and foods items like salsa, soup mixes and pickle kits.

Drop-in or appointment candle making is available during business hours, and art classes for various mediums will be taught by guest artists. 

Deanna Leslie, one of the co-owners of Art Box, said she and Judy Kelly opened the store because they love to create. Leslie wants the Art Stroll to give people a chance to come into the store and enjoy the process of creating art, no matter what their skill levels are. 

“Art is important,” Leslie said. “It nurtures the soul. ... People come together; they’re sharing creativity. Both Judy and I believe that that’s really what life is about — showing your creative gifts and sharing them with each other.”
