Visti from the Arbors
There are a lot of different activities going on at the Boatworks, which brings a wide variety of people to the building. Sometimes, having come here for one thing, they decided to return for something else. A few weeks ago we hosted a visit of some residents from The Arbors, a residence for seniors in nearby Spring Lake. The group was led by Mary Ellen Savage, who had come to the building previously for one of the many musical performances held there. However, she was impressed by the quality of the art on the walls (our annual Juried Show), how accessible our facility is, and the fact that the gallery is free, and realized that it would be a great place for a recreational outing. So she arrived with several visitors from the Arbors, who enjoyed looking at the art and talking to members who happened to be around.
Perhaps they will be back again soon. We have another show up now in the gallery, featuring railroad themed art. It's all in connection with the mural that has been created for the town's train station, which will be officially dedicated tomorrow at 4 pm. The art exhibition continues through May 2nd, and admission remains free for all visitors.
