Members walked through the park and toured the mansion. The mansion contains original furniture and art, including amazing botanical works, Blanche Ames's studio, her art materials, and a system she invented for matching watercolor pigments to the plant specimens. Borderlands is the most visited MA state park.

Members outside the mansion, left to right, Bob and Deborah Cassady, Gail Tatangelo and Joan DeGregory, our host Andrea Miller, new member Rebecca from Quincy, Joyce Westner, and park Superintendent, Ellenor Simmons.

We will be doing demonstrations at the Ames Mansion on Sunday September 21st during the The 2014 Blanche Ames National Art Exhibition which opens mid September. A number of NESBA members will have pieces in the show. For more information log onto, http://www.friendsofborderland.org/banjae.html
