Art of the Month is a members-only art contest held during each monthly meeting. Our guest demonstrator chooses 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mention (HM) . 

The contest judge will give a brief critique of each winning piece. This is a great opportunity for all of us to learn!

Read more about how Art of the Month works.

You can see the artwork at four Manchester locations: Mary Cheney Library, The Arbors, Webster Bank on Main Street, and Whiton Library on North Main Street.
