First Community Church has again invited WAAL to exhibit our work in Brownlee Hall at the church on Cambridge Blvd. Our show will be from April 1st to June 15th. Last time due to remodeling in the room our exhibit time was shortened, this time our exhibit time has been extended, how fortunate.
In past years we have had an abundance of beautiful art and the walls were covered with work. This year we are limiting the number of pieces so we can have some breathing room and each piece will be able to better stand out.
