August is the fifth month of this year to have 31 days. One extra day tagged on for artists to draw, paint, illustrate, take photos and simply create! I hope as an artist you are working on some awe-inspiring pieces through these summer months to enter in the upcoming shows at Pine Shores Art Association. 

There will be a chance to show off your black and white only artwork (no color hues allowed) in the B&W Show...   [see more...]
