September is Fells Art Month
Mike Oliver, Fells Board Member, Treasurer, and art show organizer, shares the following news about this once-a-year event, always a favorite:
Fells art month begins September 4th
The 5th annual Fells art show reminds us once again the importance of Nature in our lives. We humans are creatures of the earth, and we are so completely ourselves when we are immersed in Nature. However, Nature is under threat by those who do not appreciate its value. The show’s artists through paintings, photography and mixed media enhance our appreciation of this most precious resource and the splendor that surrounds us. Says Mike Oliver, show’s organizer and Friends board member, “This year’s show continues showcasing nature in diverse settings. It is very much in line with the Friends passion to protect and conserve the Fells, the greatest natural wonder in our area.”
Opening reception is September 4th from 7-9 at the Beebe Estate, 235 West Foster Street, Melrose.
The Gallery is open Saturdays from 11-3 and by appointment.
Owned by the city of Melrose and operated by the Beebe Board of Trustees, the Beebe Estate is the finest Greek Revival-style mansion in Melrose. Its elegant cupola and elaborate balustrade have graced West Foster Street for more than one hundred and seventy years. The Beebe Estate serves both as a cultural center for the City of Melrose where local artists can display their work and as a restored historic home available for rental to private parties and organizations.
