10 x10 "All Around Town"
Due to sustained interest we are extending our deadline to July 1st for submissions for the DAA's 100th Anniversary centennial exhibition.  We hope you will consider donating art in a 10"x10" unframed, mounted format, which will then become part of a larger panel exhibit. The exhibit will be moved around town and select pieces will be published in a centennial coffee table book.  Others will be auctioned to raise money for the DAA and our community programs. Artwork will be collected until July 1 outside the Duxbury Art Association office during Ellison Center business hours: M-F 8:30am-8:00pm and Sat. 9am-2pm.  We will have a collection spot with registration forms available.   Also, our Art2 Exhibit will be open to the public in our gallery at the Ellison Center!
