The Challenge creations will be on view in the Foundry October 18 through November 29 during regular retail hours Fridays through Sundays 11am-3pm. Home to an eclectic mix of handmade works by artists from around the Cumberland Valley, the Foundry houses a retail shop where guests can purchase unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that are made locally, view rotating exhibits featuring the work of artists both local & regional, and learn new techniques or have a fun evening with friends by attending a painting class.
