"Harvesting Hope and Humor" will feature papier mâché sculpture including "Peg's Cake," a birthday-cake hat created by Spokane artist Peggy Donovan as an exploration of turning 55 years old; Coeur d'Alene artist Rhea Giffin's "T & C Cocktail," a unique letter to the editor in response to the recent trial of a man who was charged with poisoning four cats in Post Falls; and Rathdrum artist Judy Minter's three-dimensional portrait, "Brody, Ace Pilot."
