A Note from Becky~

There is a lightness in my step now that the sun is shining! This is partly because sunshine feeds my soul, and partly because it indicates that CALC is embarking on our summertime path. Why is this such a special time at CALC? So many reasons! Here are just a few:

• A bustling building filled with youth ages 3-15 using their imaginations and creating works for themselves and for our community
• An evening to celebrate Maureen Reed and her immense impact on our community through the arts, June 20, 2019
• The installation of temporary, meaningful, large-scale public works of art downtown!
• A robust schedule of classes for adults of every skill level
• Free artistic opportunities for our members (April 27!), and to community members at several upcoming community events and fairs
• Several thoughtful exhibits opening throughout the summer—see page 3 of the newsletter for details
• Art on the Farm! We have a lot of fun changes this year! Watch artists create in the fields of Roots Flower Farm, then enjoy a local food dinner and live auction. Proceeds benefit Farmers on the Square and PASA.

And while not quite summer, mark your calendar for the event of the year: The mARTini Auction, November 23, 2019!

I hope you will join us for this summer of fun and important events and programs! And when the sun is out–I’m out–so stop me and ask me for more details about all of this!
