En Plein Air

Have you seen this show yet?  Overheard in the gallery during the first week of this exhibit have been exclamations of "Excellent!"  "Outstanding!"  "One of the best shows ever!"

Long-time and brand new members alike have brought in their best plein air pieces, which have been masterfully arranged throughout the gallery.  If you've seen it, please tell your friends and family, or give them a guided tour!  If you haven't -- well, you still have just a bit of time to pull together a few folks to come on out to 8 Coleman Ave.  Give yourself the gift of an unhurried time with these truly wonderful watercolors, oils, ceramics and more.

This exhibit has been extended through Sunday, December 1!

ARTIST PICK-UP Monday Dec. 2, 3-7p
Next up in the gallery:

If this is your first holiday with the KAA, let's be clear:  this is a BIG show!  We stock the gallery with a lot of our works of art that make fabulous unique, handmade, local gifts.

We hang art on the wall, and we set up tables and pedestals and other festive displays to show off our cards, pots, knit goods, scarves, mittens, ornaments, jewelry, stationery, journals, hats, prints, calendars, baskets, felted critters - what will you bring?  The usual 3-item limit does not apply to these small items, and you might need to restock along the way!

Watch for your postcard for more details.  Drop off will be Monday, December 2!!

Thank You, KSB!

The Kittery Art Association recently received a generous donation from the Kennebunk Savings Bank.  Support from our members and our sponsors  keeps us going, and we are so grateful for this recognition of the importance of art in the local community!
