Luann Hume is a member of the Princeton Arts Society, the Leominster Art Association, and many other regional art associations, as well as a resident artist at the Fitchburg Rollstone Gallery.  Luann is a well-known U.S. artist who specializes in watercolor and pastel paintings of landscapes and seascapes.  She is an elected member of the Pastel Society of America and has won numerous awards throughout her artistic career, both in judged and juried shows.

Over 24 pieces of her art work are now on display at the Princeton Branch of the Barre Savings Bank and at Princeton’s Bagg Hall through the end of March.  All works are for sale and can be purchased directly from the artist.  A portion of all sales will be donated by the artist to the Princeton Arts Society to support community-wide art related events.  All are invited to stop in and enjoy the work of this talented artist.

News from Rosalie and Sam Lazarus

Best to all our painting friends in PAS Portrait Group and membership! Just reporting that Sam won a third place ribbon in the Fountain Hills Cultural Council Annual Juried Exhibition.  His medium is acrylic.  Rosalie won two second place ribbons, one for pastel and the other for oil.
Hope you are enjoying the winter.  We have been a little chilled here in Arizona.  (not complaining.)

Call to Artists: Community Arts Festival March 29!

Please join us as a participating artist at the Seventh Annual Community Arts Festival, to be held Thursday, March 29, 2012 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Thomas Prince School in Princeton.
As some of you know, the Arts Festival was developed to celebrate the creative efforts of students at Thomas Prince School and artists of the wider Wachusett community. Each year, we display artwork and written work by TPS students, and invite local artists, writers, and musicians to display and demonstrate their own work to the students and community members who attend.
 This year our theme is Letters and Numbers, although artists need not bring work that relates to the theme. (We welcome community artists because they set a great example of lifelong creativity and commitment to the arts.)We’re planning a wonderful evening of giant word searches and poetry walls, letter and number games (hopscotch, four-square), a Community Illustrated Letter table, displays of alphabet and number sculptures by students, choral and band performances, and much more.
 The Festival is a lively event, with adults and children roaming the school, looking at displays, and talking to the attending artists. It is very informal and fun, does not cost anything, and is not a fund-raiser, although it is supported in part by the TPS PTA.
 We can provide table or floor space for whatever work you would like to display, and an identifying placard. If you reserve table space, please plan to arrive by 4:30 and be available to talk about your work between 5:30 and 7:30 pm. You are also free to offer your work for sale if you like.
 Real refreshments (not just cookies!) will be available for all. 
If you’d like to be a part of this delightful community event, please call me at (978) 464-2973 or email me at cgolding1 at verizon dot net. Please get in touch on or before February 15, 2012. 

On behalf of the Thomas Prince art department, students, and the Arts Festival Committee: Thanks!!!

With best wishes,

Claire Mowbray Golding
