A long overdue hello
to you

We are sorry we have not had much to inform you of during the COVID-19 quarantine. Your Board of Directors met by video conference on May 28, to discuss our group. We feel confident that our Distinguished Artist Series will be able to resume on September 17, featuring printmaker Dean Thomas. Precautions will be taken as necessary to prevent any further spread of COVID-19.

Recap of 2020 Members Art Exhibition from March 8-15, 2020

We had a great opening reception before the onset of the pandemic. There were 134 artists works on display. Unfortunately, we had to close it the following Sunday due to COVID-19, after exhibiting for only 3 days. All the art that was not picked up is safely stored in the Mill. Once we are permitted to use the Mill again, we will select a date to have members pick up their art.
