Let me begin by wishing all of you a healthy and fulfilling new year with many opportunities to participate in the wonderful world of art. I was able to see the Paul Allen collection at the Portland Art Museum this December and was so glad that I made a point to go.
January will feature a group show in the main gallery with works by all twenty members. The show opens on Wednesday, January 6, and continues through Saturday, January 30.
The guest show on the West Wing wall will feature work by non-member artists who responded to a theme of "Solitude."
A public reception to celebrate both installations is scheduled for Saturday, January 9, from 5 to 8 p.m. Please note this is a change in time from previous receptions - we will start and end an hour earlier than in the past.
Here's a peek at a few of the pieces you will see this month.
