I think I can safely say this has been a crazy Spring...
The 2020 year started with a fantastic joint show with the Vermont Pastel Society. Thank you to all at the VPS for the work required to facilitate the show and to Lisa Regopoulos as PSNH liaison and to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for providing a wonderful venue to display our work.
While our/your opportunity to visit the show was cut short due to the pandemic, we are working on the coordination to retrieve the art still on display.
Jeff Ventola's and Karen Isreal's workshops have been postponed due to the limits on social gatherings. We will be updating this information as the National Social Distancing guidelines ease.
I do hope this time sheltered at home has produced some fantastic art, and we want to see it! What better way to see it than to participate in our annual Members’ Show? We are again adherring to limits on social gatherings, so it will be exhibited in an online format. The Libary Arts Center & Studio in Newport, NH will be hosting our show! Click the link below for more information.
We are still researching our options for the 2020 It’s Pastel! Show, so stay tuned.
Happy Painting to all!

The pickup of our artwork at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital will be
Friday, June 26, 2020.
We are NOT allowed to enter the hospital so this will not be a business as usual pickup. Here are our instructions:
We are in need a few volunteers from PSNH to help pick up the paintings, to alleviate long waiting times, and to avoid too many people gathering at once. If you are available to help, please email Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or text her at 978-400-1151, to figure out a time slot that works for you. The times will be spread per hour beginning at 10:30 a.m. Lisa would REALLY appreciate your help. If you absolutely need to come to pick up your own painting, you will need to email me so I can fit you into a time slot. If you belong to both societies, please let me know if I need to add your painting to the PSNH pick up.
The gallery coordinator, Marianne Barthel, will be bringing the paintings to the entrance. The paintings will need to be wrapped AFTER they are brought outside, so if you are volunteering, please bring wrap, tape, boxes, blankets, etc. to wrap the paintings you are taking. We will try to have this run as smoothly as possible but please understand there may be some waiting involved. Please have a mask and practice social distancing at check out.
Thank you all very much for your patience during the pandemic colliding with our exhibition!
