Arty Party 

The perfect place to have your own

Arty Party is at Art by the Tracks with

Day Barnes! It is by far the most fun

way to celebrate a birthday. 

Needlepoint Faces 

Artist Leanna Leithauser Lesley, whose show "Shaken by the Roots" is featured in our lower galleries, is a fiber artist driven by the power of jazz music. She has been doing needlepoint from a very young age. Each piece of art that she does is based on a different image, so the buyer will always know they have an original. A lot of Leanna's inspiration comes from old jazz album art, and you can almost feel the music in the portraits.
