Last Day of The Artist's Circle Exhibition; Here are some parting shots of the beautiful exhibition.

The Artist' Circle Exhibition is winding down . The exhibition ran from July 9-28 at the Sharon Art Center, Peterborough , NH. This show is an example of some of the finest work being created today, and it especially interesting that is happening at this moment in time right here in this small state of New Hampshire. Our thanks to all the artists . We will forever remember this exhibition in our minds and hearts.

"Great show!" Often people stop us at Roy's Market to tell James and I how much they are enjoying the exhibit. They rave at the excellence of the work and the talent and creativity of this group of artists. I kept a list of some of the words I have heard used to describe this show; breathtaking, inspiring, craftsmanship, passionate,calming and superb.
A big THANKS to the artists for making this possible .
