Several members of the association traveled together last fall to Jackson, New Hampshire, and this spring to Monhegan, Maine, to paint the landscape. These pieces will be available for viewing and for sale.

The exhibit will showcase the diversity of the group in oil, pastel and watercolor media, both plein air and studio pieces. The exhibiting artists will answer questions about their pieces at the reception while guests enjoy appetizers and beverages.

Members of the group are Dorothy Aham, Michele Champion, Grace Daly, Karen Fitzgerald, Sarajean Graham, Christine Molitor Johnson, Pam Perras, Cynthia Stern and Mary Ann Varoski.

The association will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
