Shelby Meyerhoff, Forest Kindergarten instructor, is one of the featured artists in May Art Blossoming  at the Beebe Estate, 235 West Foster St, Melrose. May Art Blossoming celebrates the creative spirit in all of us.

She is thrilled to be exhibiting her work at the Beebe Estate in the May Art Blossoming show. To learn more, visit ShelbyMeyerhoff.com
