An afternoon of Art to benefit Mainely girls

 

We call this art show and sale “In Her Own Image,” and though not every piece contains an image of a girl or woman, there is a female sense that floats through this collection.

 

We hope you’ll find below some artists’ names you’re familiar with, and some that are new.

You can often find out more about the artists by checking for a website.

 

We look forward to seeing YOU where you’ll actually get to SEE the art!
