78th Annual Guild Hall Members Exhibition

The 78th Annual Guild Hall Members Exhibition opened this weekend. The show is often thought of as the opening of the Art Season on the East end and is a wonderful fundraiser for Guild Hall. Each artist pays a submission fee and if their work is sold, donates 50% of the sale price to the museum. Every member of Guild Hall is eligible to exhibit work. The show is a great example of what makes our community great.
Here are a few of the works that caught my eye.
The show is up until June 4th.
