We are sad to announce the loss of former member Anita Witten who passed away on May 19, 2021. She was an artist, political activist, voracious intellectual, language usagerian, enthusiastic railroad traveler and relentless copy editor. She visited Valley Artisans Market regularly and chatted with artist members about their work, providing feedback and critiques for works of all kinds and happily buying our art. We thank her for all her energy and enthusiasm. She will be missed and remembered.
