Freehold Art Society participated again in the Farmingdale Farmers’ Make and Market outdoor event, July 29th. Carolyn Tischer Bartlett and Jane Gavaghen put in the whole day on site. Jill Barba brought a number of paintings for the display and helped with the cleanup.. On August 26th Carolyn was joined by Avram and Marcia Shapiro for the day. Hema Gupta brought several paintings for the exhibit and helped with cleanup. We handed out information about the Art Society and the overall response to our display was positive. Several small pieces were sold. We plan to be on hand for the next Market, September 29, 9 am-3 pm. representing Freehold Art Society.

The Prospectus for the next Open Exhibit at the Freehold Public Library is in this newsletter. Please read it carefully, as some guidelines have changed. Linda Hart, the volunteer director of this show, also asks that you try to keep a record of the paintings you enter in these shows, as she regrets having to turn away anyone who brings a piece previously shown there.
