by Verve Vertu Artists

Creations by various artists from the Verve Vertu art studio will be on display this March.

The Verve Vertu studio has been in existence for twelve years and has been located in Dallas for the past five. It is a studio comprised of over thirty artists with talents in a variety of mediums ranging from fiber art to watercolors and pastels. Located at 24 Main Street in Dallas, the studio is open to the public for group as well as private classes and parties.
The studio welcomes the community to stop in and view the exhibits in their gallery and shop their boutique for one of a kind gifts and unique artwork. Their pieces are not only regionally known, but internationally, finding new homes as far as Tibet and Sweden. If you would like to view more pieces from the studio, their artists will be featured at the Pauly Friedman Art Gallery on the campus of Misericordia University in April. The show will be titled Whimsy and Wonder and promises to intrigue the viewer. Smiles are guaranteed, and will give one cause to pause and embrace the wonder.
