Jeanine Taylor Folk Art – 

Jeanine Taylor Folk Art presents All Smalls, a new collection of art straight from the heart of Theresa Disney. As a self-proclaimed “visual storyteller,” Disney gives voice to her imagination through any medium she can get her hands on. Being an artist is all she’s ever known. Rising early and working until exhaustion sets in, she goes to bed thankful and wakes up grateful to be able to create. Complimentary snacks and beverages will be available at Saturday’s opening reception from 6-9pm.
