Members of the Crofton Art Group felt a sense of renewal with their first exhibition and sale on May 6 and 7 since the fall exhibition in November 2019.
The Crofton Seniors Center was filled with paintings for the spring event and proud artists displayed their work throughout the two days.
“It was great,” said Crofton Art Group president Susan Law. “People enjoy going out after the mandates have been lowered a bit. It was fun for us. We missed two years. »
You’d think artists would have just continued to paint while locked down for COVID, but that wasn’t the case for all. Band member Sue Bosecker said it was quite the opposite for most of them.
“You’re stuck at home and you had no motivation,” she conceded.
“In our weekly meetings, it generates energy,” Law added.
The return of regular Wednesday gatherings, monthly management meetings and then the show definitely inspired artists to produce again. Of the 42 members of the group, about 20 took part in the show and the public came to see the wide variety of work.
“It was a good turnout,” Law noted. “People seem to be cheerful and optimistic.”
There were 88 framed paintings on display and “there are tons and tons of them unframed,” Bosecker added. This included some tiny creations.
This is the 68th year for the Crofton Art Group. It seems like yesterday when the big 65th anniversary was celebrated and now the 70th is already on the horizon.
