On October 4th Diane Alire celebrated her fourth solo show at New Grounds Print Shop and Gallery! The evening was full of fun and excitement. Above stands Diane's sister and the artist herself in front of her art. After guests had an opportunity to take in the amazing new art produced, Diane gave a demonstration on her process to give people a better idea on how she creates her beautiful images.
