CALUMET -- Copper Country Associated Artists (CCAA) will celebrate a Grand Re-Opening at the CCAA Gallery on First Friday, June 1, at their new location, 205 Fifth St. in Calumet.

Friday, June 1, will be a special evening with prize drawings, refreshments and a real summery project that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. If you haven't stopped in to see this new space, the Grand Re-Opening would be a good time to come see the artists and visit with friends.

Members at the CCAA will be hosting a "wire and bead dragonfly" workshop from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. this First Friday. These delightful little critters can hang from a screen door or window. All materials will be provided, but if you have some special beads or wire that you would like to use, you are welcome to bring it along. Extra long-nosed pliers could also come in handy. This workshop is free and open to the public, though donations are always welcome.

Participants and Gallery visitors can enter a drawing for a gift certificate as well as prizes offered by some of the CCAA artists.
