Open House, Gallery Reception, & Membership Meeting


Friday September 11 at 5:30pm we open our doors to the public to demonstrate everything the Art Center has to offer people who’d like to get started in art. Our teachers will be doing demos in their preferred mediums, and everyone attending will be eligible to win free art classes.

We’re combining this Open House with the gallery reception and awards presentation for the “Bazaar and Surreal” gallery show. We’re also planning a brief Annual Membership Meeting to accept nominations from the floor for next year’s candidates to our board of directors.

Don’t be shy about this! If you’d like to be considered for a board position, please call Sandy Wood at the Art Center, 941-423-6460. We are always searching for new board members to lend their hands and hearts to the cause.

The Open House is made possible by the Deirdre Bartolotta Memorial Fund, donations made in Mrs. Bartolotta’s name at her passing to commemorate her dedication to the Art Center and to promote adult art education in the community. As always, refreshments will be provided and everyone is welcome.

Bartolotta Fund Event. Donations to the Deirdre Bartolotta Memorial Fund, which makes possible this Open House and helps to fund other NPAC activities, can be made online.
