Our Summer Reception in August for area artists was a great success. It is always inspirational and fun to be with like-minded people. The day was beautiful, the food sensational, the art remarkable--all in all, a wonderful afternoon. We had music by Terry White and art that included paintings, photographs, fiber art, basketry, and more.
Thanks to Sue Lester and her team, we are again keeping the Dorchester Center for the Arts' front window looking beautiful. Here is the window for February.
Some of our members teach classes in Cambridge, Maryland, at the Dorchester Center for the Arts. Here you see Will Dennehy, Robert Gladney and Paul Winters. Painting, pottery and fused glass--why not try it?

Our member, Robert Gladney, is teaching ceramic decoration to a group of students who came through the Eastern Shore Hospital Center. The completed plates were a diverse and colorful collection of creative ideas--beautiful and amazing.
Loving Vincent, a movie told around the animation of Vincent Van Gogh's art, was our entertainment in March. This was quite a spectacular presentation of his troubled life.

In early May, we gathered to see Moulin Rouge. This was the original film about the Moulin Rouge cabaret where Toulouse-Lautrec made many sketches of patrons and dancers. Great movie. Very good pizza. And fabulous company.
Tina Johnson, Program and Event Coordinator at the Dorchester Center for the Arts, visited with us this September morning. Well-qualified and talented, we are delighted to have her join us.
