2017 New London Historical Society Young At Art Show a wonderful event!
With over 100 pieces of art designed by students in the region—grades K-12—the show was enjoyed by more than 250 friends, family, and NLHS members. Attendees not only enjoyed the art show, but were able visit the many buildings and transportation museum.
Our thanks to the many volunteers, teachers, and parents who made this event possible.
Special thanks to our prize sponsors: Bob and Debbie Zeller; David and Janet Royle; Mary Fanelli; Casey Biuso; Rosanna Long; Patty McGoldrick; and Linda Jaggard. Many thanks, as well, to Artisans and the Morgan Hill Book Store for their enthusiastic support of the show.
Our judges were so impressed by the works of art, that we had two ties and two honorable mentions. We are grateful to the distinguished panel of judges—artists Ann Feeley Kieffer, Kristen Ash Chertikhin, Terry Moore, and our neighbor Tomie dePaola who also served as master of ceremonies.
