Something New for You…a Podcast!

Guild Member and Membership Director Rosemary Connelly found this great 21 minute podcast about finding creative ways to prioritize your art and find time during your day to paint more. This is from National Public Radio (NPR) so you can be sure of its quality. Be sure to turn up the volume on your computer/pad/phone and give it a listen!

Members Brenda Hounshell and Chee Ricketts have been selected for participation in the 2020 Rockingham Fine Arts 6x6x30 Exhibition.

“This juried exhibition asks the accepted artists to create a 6″x 6″ piece of art each day for 30 days. The 30 finished pieces are then mounted onto a display board. The entries consist of a large range of types of art including sculpture, fabric, collage, tile work, watercolor, glass, pottery, painting and many other media.”
