Concord Art Association's Paint the Town fundraiser is happening soon.  A worthwhile event for a very fine art organization that does an outstanding job supporting the arts, artists, and the community near and far beyond their base.  Concord Art  has a very wide reach not just in surrounding metro west communities of Boston but throughout New England.

I was invited to participate again in this event.  I am donating one of my favorite paintings for the silent auction with any sales all going to the association.  This is Estuary, painted plein air, one fine October day near the marshes of the Plum Island area.  Though a small painting on close inspection one will see it is quite expressive in color and mood.  I am not one to normally promote or sell my work but this one I consider a real gem.  I do hope it finds an appreciative buyer at the auction.  Then we will all benefit by supporting the arts.

The auction takes place on Saturday, May 21, and the artists' reception will be held on Thursday, May 12, from 6 - 8 PM.  Hope to see you there.
