"It's kind of like a homecoming," says Tom Suomalainen, a ceramicist and one of the four remaining founding members of the guild.

"Millie was just full of energy and follow-up," Suomalainen says.
In the future, Suomalainen envisions adding a satellite gallery space downtown to feature two artists at a time so that patrons would have the opportunity to spend more time learning about individuals' work.
He says that at a recent First Friday Gallery Hop, attendees discussed the current economic situation and agreed that in these kinds of times, more emphasis needs to be put toward community support.
