Happy summer reading! 

Hope you all have had a great summer season and have caught up on a superb collection of museum exhibitions including James Turrell at the Guggenheim, Paul McCarthy at the Armory, Xu Bing at MASS MoCA, Ken Price at the Met, and the new Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia.

I hope you can make the most of the last weeks of summer with this end-of-summer blog and please join us at Salon Night, moderated by David Kennedy, Associate Artistic Director at the Westport Country Playhouse on Tuesday, September 3 at 6pm. 

Please submit artwork to our upcoming juried members exhibition, "Home Sweet Home" on September 11, 2013. We very much look forward to seeing you at the Opening Reception of "Home Sweet Home" on Friday, September 20 from 6 - 8pm.
