VINS Plein Air 2018

CALL TO ARTISTS!  KCC Art Show in Honor of Sarah Mildred Long Memorial Bridge
Exhibit Start Date:  Wednesday, January 9th, 2019, at 6 PM.

photo by Bill Moore

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.
We know this event is a long way off at this point, but much time is needed in order to carefully consider each photo and/or artwork submitted.   
In any case, if you're interested in having your photos or artwork included in this special presentation, please contact 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 January.
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!
