Reception: 5:30 - 7pm May 24
Pick Up Paintings 10am - 2 pm   July 9

Think wildlife, sea life, flowers, birds, landscapes, etc.  As space is limited to 30-33 pieces, you are invited to enter only one painting.  Should we not have 30 participating artists, those who have registered will be given the opportunity to enter one more on a first registered, first invited basis.   The fee is $15.00 for the first painting.  The fee seems high, but your work is exhibited for 3 months.  MD Hall does not take a commission but asks a donation of your choice should you sell your piece.  MD Hall will host a reception on May 24 from 5:30-7:00pm for our exhibit combined with the exhibits in their two main galleries.
