Beach Pea Baking Co. Exhibit
Featuring KAA artist Rosalind Fedeli

Rosalind Fedeli continues her show through  the end of December.  Her work is mixed media, where she implements various found objects, fabric and paint in her work.  

From the artist:  "These small paintings of Leaves and Foliage have all been created in the past year.....in primarily oil.  I enjoy the process of contemplating the shapes and textures; my parents were 
landscape architects so it sort of comes as a natural subject.  I have recently moved to a small home/gallery/studio in York Village.  I am a prolific  artist, completely involved in my ever style  changing work."


Beach Pea Baking Co.  is located at 53 State Road in  Kittery, ME.

If you are interested in  having your artwork  displayed a t this  totally cool & hip little establishment  right here in Kittery, contact Betsy Wish at  bjwish@gmail.com !    A very few slots are still available for 2019.

Stop the grumbling!  The Sarah Mildred Long Bridge was late, but it's here...and every time it saves you a few minutes getting from here to there, you should celebrate its completion!  
 
With that in mind--in cooperation with the Visual Arts Committee at the Kittery Community Center--KAA member Bill Moore is helping to organize a night to honor the demise of the old Sarah Mildred Long Bridge and the arrival of the new structure with a special presentation in the STAR Theatre and an art show in the Morgan Gallery starting at 6 PM on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.
 
This event is open to the public, and you're invited!  And if you happen to have a photo or a painting of the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge you'd like to share, Bill would be happy to consider it. Con tact Bill Moore at hemmmingwa@gmail.com .  Do it now!
The Kittery Art Association, a charitable organization incorporated by the state of Maine, sponsors a variety of public events in support of local artists and writers of all ages.  
Membership is $35 and expires each December 31.
Membership applications are available on our website, or feel free to pick one up at the KAA Gallery located at 8 Coleman Ave., Kittery Point, ME.  We look forward to hearing from you, and thank you for supporting the Arts!
