Southern exposure in Attleboro


It looks like spring is actually on the way! Last weekend I did a little volunteering for the Red Tent Event in Cranston, RI (a wonderful cause by  the way - an initiative to end violence against women and girls in RI) and outside I noticed a few promising little stems growing. Now the Rhodes on the Pawtuxet is a little further south than where I live, and at the time I had a good amount of snow on the ground at my home (still have some now), but I did see a few crocuses sprouting up in Oxford while I was out shopping today too. Thank God! I can't take any more winter.

So it's appropriate that the Attleboro Arts Museum's Flower Show is coming up at the end of this month. This year's theme for the art show is "Southern Exposure", and just the thought of warm climates, brilliant sunshine and golden light is intoxicating! One of my new mixed-media encaustic pieces will be included in the art show (yay!) and I'll be down at the museum for a couple of days during the weekend. The event is very family-friendly, with flower and landscape displays, the art show, music, food, live painting, demonstrations and gardening information. 

If you're thinking about going, here's the scoop - the show runs Thursday, March 31st through Sunday April 3rd, with an admission of $3 each day (children 9 and under get in free). A full schedule of events can be downloaded here. Hope to see you there!
