5th Annual Cup and Mug Invitational

Portrait Marathon 2011

On October 22nd, three sitters were drawn by Deb Kirk, Jean Murphy, Linda Johnson, Merry Pratt, and Sid Solomon. Mothers were very excited and happy with their children's portraits.

A big thank you to the artists for taking their time on a nice autumn Saturday, and to all who passed the word around about the Portrait Marathon.  $115.00 was raised for the PAS. We'd like to fill all six sitting slots for next year! –Naoko Gomi

Memorial Tribute; Connie Salter

Connie Salter was a member of the Princeton Arts Society for many years. She lived in West Boylston and passed away on October 30th at the age of 91. She was a printmaker, watercolorist and made handmade paper on which she painted and printed. Her art was always in the Spring Member shows except for the past few years. As a docent at the Worcester Art Museum she was known for her many lively tours of the Museum Collections. She also was  an art teacher in the West Boylston Schools.

Rest In Peace, Connie.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Puppets are not just for children!
 Shadow Puppet Extravaganza

 On the weekend of November 19th and 20th, Firefly Shadow Theater, in collaboration with the Princeton Arts Society, will bring the exciting dramatic art of shadow puppetry to the area.  Saturday, November 19th from 3-5pm, a hands-on shadow puppet workshop, ideal for elementary-age children and families, will take place at the First Congregational Church (14 Mountain Rd., Princeton).  This workshop combines performance, puppet-making, Q & A, and a glimpse behind the scenes.

Sunday, November 20th, from 5-6:30 pm at the Princeton Arts Society room in the Princeton Center Building (18 Boylston Ave, Princeton), Firefly will perform the classic tale The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which adults will especially enjoy.  The performance will be followed by Q & A, a brief history of this ancient art, and a demonstration of traditional puppets from China, India, Indonesia and Turkey.  Contact  Andrea Caspari at 978-464-5356 with questions.

Both programs have been funded by the Princeton Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Mass. Cultural Council, a state agency.  Both programs are free.  Refreshments provided! 

Linda Johnson Exhibit

Linda Johnson is displaying 17 paintings until the end of January at
Papa Gino's pizza restaurant in Worcester.  She would sure like you
to attend the opening this coming Tuesday (November 15), 5-7

are on her web site).  Six of them are derived from photos she took
when she was in Asia.  Almost all of the paintings are figurative and
narrative.  Join her and several artists for pizza and other Italian
style food.

Free Art Lecture at WPI Nov. 21

The public is invited to a free art lecture titled "The Southern Frontier: The Landscapes of Bartram’s Travels"

by Philip Juras, landscape artist, ecologist and landscape architect

The lecture will feature a slide show of Juras' paintings depicting 18th Century Southern landscapes as they would have been observed by naturalist William Bartram when he traveled throughout the American South.
Sponsored by the WPI Arts & Humanities Department.

4:00 p.m. Monday, November 21. 
Lecture Hall Room 104
Salisbury Laboratories Building
WPI Campus

More information about Juras and images of his great landscape paintings can be found at: 

I plan to park in the WAM visitor’s lot on Lancaster Street and walk to the WPI campus.  If anyone would like me  to guide you to the building and the lecture hall I could meet you at the Lancaster Street lobby at 3:45 and we can walk together.

I’ll probably grab a bite to eat afterwards at a local dive and then go to the WAM figure drawing session. 

Images of three of the artist’s paintings are below.
