Paintbox Art Club Opening Reception

As mentioned in my previous post, last Sunday my husband and I attended the opening reception for the Paintbox Art Club exhibit at the Nazareth Center for the Arts. The show features a collection of works from artists like me who are members of the club.

The Nazareth Center for the Arts (NCA) is a fairly new venue. It opened in December 2009. The center is located on Belvidere Street in Nazareth, PA. (Music or guitar lovers out there might be familiar with Nazareth as the home of Martin guitars.)

The NCA is run by the Nazareth Cultural and Arts Commission. Their mission is to enhance the lives of citizens of the community by making art, music and theater a daily experience through exhibits, live performances, and educational programs.

The Paintbox Art Club is a local art group which has been sharing art with the community for over 40 years. The club meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month except in January, July and August. Meetings consist of a short business meeting followed by a demonstration by a guest artist. Meetings are held at the NCA. Paintbox is a friendly and welcoming group that is open to new members. Annual dues are a very reasonable $15.

I was quite impressed with the presentation of the Paintbox show. The center did a nice job hanging the artwork and advertising the event. The venue provides an accessible space for the public to appreciate the work of local artists.

I wish the Nazareth Cultural and Arts Commission much success with the center and thank them for their support of the local art community.
