“We are really blessed by the strength of the support of our members and volunteers”, says Gallery Manager Petrina McNeill. “It’s really quite incredible that we have so many talented artists among our membership. Over the last two years, we’ve had an overwhelming response to our members’ show. We can’t wait to see what turns up this year.”
“Our members and volunteers give so much to the gallery. I am constantly amazed at all the endeavors our members are up to in and out of their studios”, says Curator Katie Brennan, “That they still have time support the gallery the way they do is outstanding”.
