Almost Out of Time!
This is the last week to view our fourth exhibition for the season! If you haven't yet stopped in, now is the time. "Where I Live" will come down this Sunday. We will then begin accepting works for the final exhibition. (More about that early next week!) In the meantime, stop into the gallery!

Three Exciting Events!
    In celebration of our 70th anniversary, Essex Art Association is pleased to announce the following events scheduled for the 2016 calendar year.

Griswold Inn Art Talk — November 13
Geoff Paul of the Griswold Inn has graciously offered to give us a guided tour of the Griswold Inn's storied art collection. The talk is open to members of the Essex Art Association and guests. To make a reservation for yourself (and guests, if applicable), click here to send an email and let us know how many reservations you need.  (Click here for more about this special event.)

Founding Fathers' Day was held June 19. It was a memorable evening, enjoyed by all!
Luisa Whiting, daughter of Henry Kreis, Ned Chalker, son of E. Gould Chalker, and Bill Freeman, son of Fred Freeman, shared stories about their fathers—three of the founders of Essex Art Association. (Click here for more about this special event.)

Field Trip to the Hill-Stead Museum — Date to be determined
