What a fantastic Opening on Saturday night for "It's Pastel!" our 11th Annual National Juried Exhibition! Shuk Susan Lee and Keith Demanche did a fantastic job pulling the event together. 84 Works were chosen from 230 entries.  All told over $6K in prizes were awarded with Eileen Casey's Time for Reflection taking Best of Show! If you missed the Opening the show is up through November 30th at Discover Portsmouth. Art Pick up is December 1 from 11am - 2pm.

Our annual member meeting was held November 9th, 2019. We enjoyed a beneficial peer critique of participating members’ works. As a matter of business, the proposed 2020 Board of Directors was accepted adding Sharon Boisvert to the Outreach Chair and Carol Corliss as Treasurer.


We are still actively looking to fill out the vacant chairs on the Board:

Vice President

Hospitality (Juried show)




Please contact me if you are interested in serving on the Board. We can review the open positions and I will provide the duties of each position. The strength of our association is our membership and member participation with the organization. The requirements to obtain Signature Member status requires a 2-year term on the Board.
