Newburyport Art Association is more than a local members’ art organization. Its numerous programs and outreach into the greater region are something we can all be proud of, but these programs do come at a cost. NAA does a marvelous job of doing a lot with very limited resources, but could do more if the funds were available. I encourage readers to consider supporting NAA and its education and community outreach programs by helping with funding in the spirit of the Art of Giving. I know the NAA Board of Directors and staff are enormously grateful for the support they have received to date from community members and institutions – I hope you will join them in this noble cause. Please contact NAA Executive Director Elena Bachrach by phone, 978-465-8769, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
