From the President:
Congratulations to all those who were accepted into the 44th MAS Annual Juried Exhibition & Sale. Our thanks to the juror, Stephanie Birdsall, who graciously viewed over 200 entries. Her comments on the works presented are: “First of all, the show was beautifully organized and the Society volunteers were very giving with their smiles and helpfulness. There were so many finely executed paintings in all the mediums that it was hard to choose. I look for concept; what is the painting about? Does it tell the viewer what it wants to? Could I feel the moment that the painting captured in time? I look for creativity along with expertise in the medium. One of the things I enjoyed about the show overall was the varied subject matter. It speaks highly of the society to have so many painting different subjects in so many mediums”.
Thanks to all the volunteers who worked tirelessly through receiving, jurying and hanging. Thanks to co-chairs, Jim Durkin and Diana Roberts-Paschal; Patricia Seekamp and Elena Gerard and Bill Colrus who helped direct the process throughout the weekend. We are really so fortunate to have such dedicated and talented members of MAS.
Reception is Sunday, August 4th from 6 – 8 p.m. Awards will be presented at that time. Please stop by to view the beautiful display of artwork, to congratulate the award winners and enjoy the refreshments.
President, Marge Casey
