We took a break from the feasting to gather outside where Pat recognized Calli Dobrzynski, one of our teen artists, for her contributions to the new mural.
Also Bob Mataranglo, who once again used his contacts to get us the paint, as well as making a really cool 3D piece- the big blue claw crab.

Last night the Boatworks hosted the most recent Member Salon. All members were invited to put a piece in the show. The well attended event was a platform for each exhibiting artist to discuss their work with peer members.

The north side mural is almost done. The scaffold is gone, the figures are almost done, and they have some sand to stand on. A little bit of detail and touch up remains, but that should all be taken care of before its official dedication on September 28. For more information about the dedication event, click here.
The BAC will be presenting the BBC drama The Impressionists, as a two part series hosted by Sandy Cook. The lavish production shows how the impressionists stuggled to break into the closed art hierarchy of the French art establishment of the 19th century. It's told through the eyes of Monet, who tells stories about himself, Renoir, Bazille, Cezanne, Manet, Degas, and others, based on actual letters and other documents of the time.
The film will be shown in two 90 minute parts, with discussion to follow each night.
Part 1- Tuesday, September 23
Part 2- Tuesday, September 30
Both nights begin at 7:30 pm at the Boatworks. Admission is free.
