The Kids Are Alright!
These are photos of the George Mitchell School 6th grade class art show and reception now at the Tuckerton Seaport until May 3rd. The paintings were a partnership project between the school, the Seaport and PSAA. The 72 paintings, all 11 x 14 acrylic paint on canvas covered board, were delivered to the Seaport on Friday afternoon, so our hanging crew had to jump into action to get the show ready for the reception at noon Saturday! All paintings were hung by Willy Mueller, Ed Rennar, Harriet and Joel Fink and yours truly. The reception on Saturday included a ribbon cutting ceremony for the student show and also a new craft/reading area for the Seaport children visitors. The George Mitchell School art teacher, Kathy Csipkay, was most appreciative of PSAA's help and the Seaport's coordination of the event, especially an area provided to showcase all the children's art for the month of April! Paul Hart, Exec. Dir. of the Seaport spoke very highly of the Seaport's partnership with PSAA and looks forward to many opportunities to come in our joint future. The other woman in the photo of the ribbon cutting, Jennifer Auer, will be coordinating the craft and reading area for the Seaport.  --photos and text by Paul Hartelius

It's Time for Spring Cleaning--and the Gang's All at Pine Shores!
While a busload of Pine Shorers went off to the Whitney Museum on April 21 (scroll down for group photo), about a dozen other busy bees stayed behind for some much-needed cleanup work at the gallery: doing windows, walls, bathrooms, hallways, stairwells--even the front door and walkway. It was hard work but we all had fun! Thanks to Irene Bausmith for coordinating the effort, and to the following members for pitching in: Tom Pickle, Willy Mueller, Nancy Puleo, Joanie Parks, Jill DeFelice, Richard Snarski, Bob Novack, Ed Renner, Shelley Ristow, Pat Morgan, Carol Wilkie and Paul Hartelius (who took most of these pictures when he wan't wielding a broom).
Clockwise from top left: Connie Purvis, Jill DeFelice,Rich Snarski, Irene Bausmith, Willy Mueller, Tom Pickle, Bob Novack and Carol Wilkie. Special thanks to Lou Baptiste (not pictured), for obtaining and overseeing a carpet cleaning contractor to clean our gallery carpet and stairs on Friday, April 22, after classes were done.
At the May 9, reception, three of the show's six artists gathered for their portrait.
