Brush Gallery reception held on Saturday, September 22.

NESBA thanks Eileen Byrne, Director of the Brush Gallery and her Board, for the hosting a lovely reception for us on September 22. About 45 people were able to attend and enjoy the paintings and a bit of wine and hors d'oeuvres. Chapter president, Nancy Savage spoke to the group about what our chapter does and about the history of botanical art. About ten of our artists then spoke briefly about their paintings in the show, and about being a part of NESBA. Thanks go out to Nancy Horrall for chairing this exhibit. It is up until October 27! Please go and see it! It's a fantastic display of our work. Much of the work is for sale, and lots of prints and notecards are for sale, too! Enjoy it!

Mathilde Duffy, Joan Pierce, Nancy Horrall and Lucy Sur.
