For some people, their Valentine’s Day shopping was all done in one place.

On Saturday, Feb. 3. the Riverchase Women’s Club hosted their 12th Annual Riverchase Loves Art at the Riverchase Country Club, featured art in mediums ranging from pottery to glass to leather to paints. Each artist from the show was hand-picked.

“Continued partnership with the Riverchase Country Club also allowed us to have one of the best art shows we have ever had,” Art Show Chair Lynne Cooper said. “Each year just gets better and better.”

This year, they hosted 50 talented local artists, some returning and some new. The money raised at the event allows the Riverchase Women’s Club to support their chosen charities as well as the art community, Cooper said.
