We meet on the third THURSDAY of the month, September through May. Please check the home page for notice of any cancellation.
Temporarily, monthly meetings will be held online, via Zoom. Given the current safety considerations due to Covid-19, research is well underway for a meeting space that will be safe for everyone.
Our guest artist, Janet Schwartz, will demonstrate pastel. Trained as an art teacher, Janet currently divides her time teaching art, exhibiting her work throughout New England and working part-time in corporate training. Her work includes a cross-section of subjects that use pastels to explore the variation of light in nature and architecture.
She is particularly drawn to the chaos and unexpected beauty of urban landscapes, traffic and seascapes.
