The Bourne Wareham Art Association will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, November 21 at BBs Bar & Grille, Function Room, 2424 Cranberry Highway, Wareham, 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
Following a brief business meeting to discuss the December 1-3 Art Show and Sale, Sarah Brown will demonstrate soft pastel painting. She has been painting in pastels for around eight years and studied in workshops in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Sarah will show various techniques that she has acquired to improve your paintings. Sarah has been awarded several prizes in competitive shows and done several demos, most recently at Elizabeth Taber Library in Marion. She teaches pastels at her Marion studio.
The Bourne-Wareham Art Association will be presenting their Annual Holiday Art Sale on Friday, December 1 through Sunday, December 3 at the Wareham Historical Society’s Methodist Meetinghouse, 495 Main Street, Wareham.
Commencing with an opening reception on Friday night at 5:00 pm, the BWAA members will be selling their original artwork and crafts through Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm. On display will be oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings, pastel paintings, photography, prints, and handmade craft items – all for sale at reasonable prices. Additionally, BWAA members will be on hand to discuss their creations and provide tips for artists in our community.
A portion of all sales over the weekend will go to BWAA’s annual Scholastic Art Award Fund. This fund supports the awards given each spring to two high school seniors pursuing advanced degrees in accredited schools after graduation. This tradition of giving back to the artistic community has been going on for over 50 years and continues in 2018.
The Holiday Art Sale hours are Friday, 5:00 to 9:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The public is welcome throughout the weekend.
