Michelle MacKenzie at www.mmackenziegallery.com, says after a cooler than average Summer, September has sure been HOT! Despite the heat, Michelle has been very busy in the studio and you should see the many new TOASTY works she has to show off.

She is preparing for “A Night With the Artists” next week, Thursday, September 8, from 6-9PM at the Auburn Old Town Gallery, 218 Washington Street in Historic Old Town Auburn. Michelle teams up with her artist friends, Chris Foster and Christina Salazar to introduce some exciting new artworks.
