Exhibit to benefit free health care clinic

There will be an art fundraiser this weekend to benefit the free health care clinic hosted by California Care Force. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, the Twin Star Gallery, with artists Mindy Oberne and Roger Lewis, will be opening their gallery at 13169 Twin Star Lane and all the proceeds will go to funding the free health care clinic to be put on by California Care Force, at the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Hall, November 14-15. The clinic is expected to serve more than 500 patients a day with medical, dental and vision care. It will be open to everyone for free and is funded by donations.

Oberne and Lewis have had a handbag business for more than 30 years. They design purses with three goals in mind: organization, space efficiency and comfort. They make all the bags themselves and guarantee all their workmanship. Learn more at http://www.bagglady.com

Oberne and Lewis went to Antarctica on a Russian Icebreaker with two helicopters on board, and have images from the amazing voyage which have been published in the Anzang Nature & Landscape Collection and were included in their travelling exhibition in Australia. Prints of those images will be available for purchase as well.

Oberne has been doing ceramics for the last give years and has a wide variety of styles, both functional and non-functional. She has a teapot collection, ikibana vases, coaster sets like the artichoke coaster set in the gallery photo, and much more.

Their gallery is five minutes from the fairgrounds, off Auburn Road about a mile past the North Star House Farmer’s Market. Make a right onto Hidden Valley Rd, and then a right onto Twin Star Lane. You can also call for directions at 530-273-3033. Email inquiries to mindy@bagglady.com.
