"Through Her Eyes" Collective Women's Artists Reception - TONIGHT!

Friday, February 28
6 pm, free

“Through Her Eyes”
Sponsored by the Community Foundation of Middlesex County, Sari A. Rosenbaum Fund for Women & Girls

In Celebration of International Women’s Day, March 8th, The Buttonwood Tree annually hosts a Collective Women’s Art Show in March. This year, thanks to the Community Foundation,  a new program for “emerging” artists was created. Established artists were paired with “emerging” artists to mentor them and assist them in bringing their art work to show-able, sell-able condition. This night marks the opening of the month-long show held at TBT.

A special presentation of funds from the Community Foundation will take place at 6:30pm with refreshments.

Artists: Maria Brower, Elizabeth Carre, Amanda Collins, Geonna Kline, Hannah Myja, Courtney Quigg, Cindy Profitt, Mylene Poitras

Mentors: Amber Dietz, Jeanette Drake, Kerri Powers, Anita Balkun, Sheila Mullen, Robin Price
