Westport Art Group is greeting the Spring as the awakening terra firma greets our community: with an exhibit of “Blooms” – every kind of bloom in any location, from garden to bonnet, bouquet to flowered woods.
An opening reception will be Sunday, April 28, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
The exhibit runs from April 27 to May 12, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Join us in the main gallery at 1740 Main Road, Westport Point, MA 02791. Free and open to the public!
The Judge for the exhibit will be Mary Wojciechowski, an award-winning watercolor artist and art teacher who is a signature member of the Rhode Island Watercolor Society.
The exhibit and its prizes will be sponsored by Peckham's Greenhouse, which will select the winner of the prize for best interpretation of the theme, BLOOMS. The Judge will select the winners of the other prizes.
