I recently joined MGNE at the advice of some new printmaking friends and was quickly recruited to help with art work drop off this weekend. Also volunteering was artist Barbara Kedesdy and I enjoyed getting to know her a little better! We helped artists fill out the right forms, unwrap, and prepare to drop off their work. Many artists would bring multiple pieces from other artists in their section of New England as well as their own so a pretty big geographic range is represented in this show!

An artists reception will be held September 28, 5:30-7:30pm and the show is on view from the reception date through November 2,, 2018.

Here are a few snaps of some of the work that was dropped off today. A great variety of printmaking styles and themes - It is going to be a beautiful show!
