All-Member Show
May 24th - June 17th 
KAA We Live Here!
This show is definitely an interesting display of art - but you'll have to come on over to the KAA Gallery to see it for yourselves!

Charcoal by Anastasia Maertens
Art work by Anastasia Maertens
Artist:  A graduate of the School of the Worcester Art Museum, Anastasia says her inspiration "transpires primarily from nature and textiles."   
 
In this series she decided to revisit her use of charcoal drawings; she chose to draw on a smaller scale to become "more familiar with a few of the birds, insects and plants" that she has always loved.
