Monday, September 19 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Princeton Senior & Community Center

All are invited...members, friends, and family.
OPEN STUDIO extended 
We have been hosting an Open Studio opportunity in collaboration with the Princeton Senior & Community Center on continuing for September.

Come join us for any of the September dates:
Sept. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, at 1-3 p.m.

This is free to Princeton seniors and members and friends of the Princeton Arts Society. (PAS membership not required.)

These sessions are totally informal. We encourage one another and enjoy some friendly company while we work. Participants bring all their own supplies -- from paints to drawing or craft materials…just about anything could be suitable. Come to some or all these summer Thursdays. No stress, no critiquing, just relaxed artistic vibes.

The Princeton Environmental Action Committee will have multiple tables at Hey Day this year—September 24, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.—and we would like to focus on climate sustainability and resilience. We are partnering with the Princeton Arts Society to showcase two-dimensional artwork related to climate change and its related impacts. These include, but are not limited to, threats to or resiliency of plants and animals, preservation of landscape, weather changes, species protection, etc. We hope you’ll be inspired to create some new work, or share current work, related to these themes. 

See full information and participation form HERE.

Although not fully finalized at the time of this writing, we plan to have some of our members doing artwork at this year's Hey Day. We love supporting nature and our environment; it always inspires our creativity. Look for plein air artists at work on the property and our portrait artists doing portraits of visitors in the house or classroom.

Susan Tripp says...
I am new at watercolor and this is the first one I am really proud of. Thanks to Charlie who is my teacher.
John MacKenzie shares a photo and his experience...
"A quiet hush hangs heavy in the wood. Sunlight filters through a tattered curtain of leaves. A brisk breeze lifts the branches like a conductor's baton. Suddenly the silence is shattered. Acorns rain down, slapping high fives with the leaves. A cacophony of squawking starlings take wing in swirling waves. Maple, oak, and elm leaves break free from their moorings and float to the forest floor. Squadrons of Canadian geese migrate south in v-shaped formations. A wooly bear caterpillar curls up in a ball like a frightened child. A sunning garter snake slithers into the underworld. Chipmunks and squirrels scamper and leap, jaws stuffed with looted treasure. Over thick limbs and sprawling roots I climb. The gremlins are not amused. Evergreens scowl and frown, with furrowed ice-crusted eyebrows. Ice fangs protrude over granite ledges biting, stabbing at the ground like a saber-toothed tiger. Shadows lengthen, dusk unfurls its monochrome curtain. I press on. Soon the woods will slumber, tucked snugly under winter’s fluffy white down. Ephemeral vagabonds with yellow, chipped, and rotting teeth will retreat back into the ethereal netherworld".
Ralph Caputo shares...
The Old Stove was part of a collection of some 15+ restored cast iron stoves exibited at 19 Carter in Berlin, MA, this past Spring. 
Joanne Quinn's work in Brewster
Joanne Quinn's paintings can be seen at the Dune Show, a Midsummer Celebration of Salty and Sandy at Tanuki Gallery, 440 Main Street, Brewster on Cape Cod through September.
