NESBA artists participated in Demo Day at the Ames Mansion

On Sunday, Aug 20, Four NESBA members participated in the 4th annual Demonstration Day at the Ames Mansion at Borderland State Park in Easton. This opportunity is organized by the Friends of Borderland. It is open, free of charge, to the general public.

Visitors of all ages share a common interest in learning about art, botanical art in particular.

Mathilde Duffy is drawing with colored pencils.     Joan Pierce, NESBA president, demonstates painting techniques. 













The Friends are hugely appreciative of NESBA members being willing to give their time and talk with the pubilc. This is one of the Friends most popular events of the year for the general public. It is in large measure because of the interest that NESBA artists have shown in helping the Friends that has led the Friends to plan an exhibit in 2018 that is focused solely on botanical art.

NESBA invites all of its members to participate in this 1/2 day event next August. It is lots of fun.
