The Prospectus for the next Open Exhibit at the Freehold Public Library is here. 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.
Welcome, New Members, Madhulika Kanungo and Freda Rhodes.
Freehold Art Society participated again in the Farmingdale Farmers’ Make and Market outdoor event, Saturday, September 29. . Carolyn Tischer Bartlett, Jane Gavaghen, and Valerie Rigazio, had artwork on display and represented the FAS on site during the day. Jill Barba brought a number of paintings for the display as well. We handed out information about the Art Society and the overall response to our display was positive. Several small pieces were sold. The next Market, scheduled for October 28th, was canceled due to cold, damp weather.
Freehold Art Gallery: The next exhibit at the Gallery, “Works for $200 and Under”, will be very timely for anyone looking for a special holiday gift. Every artwork in the main Galleries will be priced accordingly. The Lounge Gallery will feature the work of the students of Leslie Daley. The opening reception at the Gallery is Saturday, November 10, at 7-9 p.m. 7A West Main St., Freehold. ________________________________________________________________
