Save our Cottages Art Exhibit and Reception
The Beach Art Center is pleased to announce a “Save Our Cottages” evening of art on Saturday, January 11, 2020 featuring the Plein Aire Cottage Artists – Mary Rose Holmes, Violetta Chandler and Helen Tilston. Although tickets for the IRB debut of the “Save Our Cottages: Artists with a Cause” documentary are sold out, the Beach Art Center invites you to join us for the Opening Reception and Art Exhibit starting at 7:30 at the Center.
