Fall Members' Show

Once again this year's Fall Members' Show will be displayed at the Artist's Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place and will be on display for the first two weekends in October, Oct. 5-7 and Oct. 12-14. Each member is allowed to submit two works for a fee of $5/entry. The artist's reception is tentatively planned for the second Saturday, Oct. 13, from 2-5. A judge will award ribbons in each media some time between the first and second weekend and the public will be asked to vote for "The Peopl's Choice Award" which will then be announced during the reception on Oct. 13. The drop off will be Thursday, Oct. 4, 3-7 pm. And pick-up will be Sunday Oct 14 at 6-7pm or Monday, Oct. 15 3-5 pm. Members will be asked to help cover the gallery and greet the public for 4-hour shifts both weekends. The more the merrier! Just so you know, the first Sunday of the exhibit (Oct. 7) will coincide with a 4:15 Patriots football game against the Denver Broncos. But there are no football games scheduled for the second weekend. As usual, the forms will be mailed out with the September newsletter and made available at the September 12 meeting. Feel free to e-mail Frank Quinn with any questions at
