  Archway Artisans Art Co-op Pamphlet
by deecat


While in historic Centerville, we walked around checking out the architecture and the shops. We were interested in a shop where they were scraping paint and repainting the trim of the building called, Archway Artisans Art Co-op. It's a working co-op, and the finished products are sold here at reasonable prices.

The pottery is all hand-crafted by: Nate Wilson, June Kinsinger, David Nagy, Ashley Mikesell, and J. Harris.

Lorri Potter is the local Soap-Maker, and she was there that day working in the shop. All her soaps and lotions are made with goat's milk.

There's also colorful oil paintings, still life paintings, and abstracts. I especially liked the oil painted pet mats, place mats, wall and floor mats that are designed by Jill Kinsinger.

What to buy: I also liked the copper, bronze, and steel sculptures. Jill and I both admired the unique lamps, candle holders, and small tables made of driftwood and other odd-shaped woods.

Yes, there is also jewelry of natural stones, ceramic, wood, cinnabar, mother-pearl, and glass as well as hand-made papier-mache beads!

If you love Stained Glass, you would enjoy Cheryl Hornsby's work.

In addition, there are lovely photographs by Gary Ratliff and gorgeous quilts by Ollie Isaccs.
Open: Friday, Saturday, and Monday 10 am to 5 pm
Sunday from 12 noon to 5 pm.

What to pay: Jill and I agreed that the prices were quite reasonable
