NEWS FROM THE BOARD

There is something for everybody at the ALL Gallery in the summer. During the Exposed open juried show, our reception will feature a no cost ice cream fest. Come see this beautiful show and sample the ice cream flavors of the season at the reception on July 15 in the Gallery and weather permitting in the new Gates Block Garden. Would you like to share some of your hardy sun and dry tolerant perennial specimens, so that the Gates Block Garden could give them a new home? Drop off in a bucket or plastic bag, and let Mary Hart know they are there at mjhart206@gmail.com. Watch out for announcements for community work sessions to help get the garden in shape. Help make our evolving garden look great!

We encourage new and present members to join one of our committees. Please contact the individual committee chairs by email. [see left sidebar]

Benefits of membership include yearly members only shows, reduced entry fees, and discounted commission on art sold of 25% (non-members pay 40% in open shows).

COMMITTEE NEWS

The Coop Committee has available spaces for rent. Contact Margarida Correia for more information: artsleagueoflowellcoop@gmail.com

The Gallery Committee will be starting to work on its' 2018 show line up in May. If you have show ideas/themes that you would like to see explored, please contact Eva Glazebrook, Gallery Chair.

The gallery is available for Event Rental. Please contact Steve Syverson for information.

The Marketing Committee will be addressing the "curb appeal" for the exterior of 307 Market Street, home of ALL. The goal is to attract visitors to the building. Plans include installing a colorful awning over the outside door, changing the mural on the side of the building, and adding lobby signage to better direct visitors. We plan to help ALL member, Mary Hart, install benches in the outside garden.
