Mt Pleasant Art Fest 2019

We had lovely, sunny  weather for the 2019 Mount Pleasant Arts Festival at the Towne Center on Saturday, March 16.   The Town of Mount Pleasant set up our tent in the center of the festivities and delivered our screens so that  Tom Meddaugh and our set up committee could begin at 8 AM.   Faye Sullivan ,  our registration Chairperson, was ready to sign in the 75 entries and prepare them for Joyce Corns and her volunteers to begin hanging.  Tammy Papa, our judge, mentioned she had a difficult time deciding the  award winning artists  because we had so many wonderful entries.  This was evidenced by our many sales. The visitors to our exhibit voted in the People's Choice Award and selected Leigh Ann Dodd's acrylic painting "I Sea You". Thank you to our volunteers who gathered the votes and to the "People's Choice" chair, Barbara Smith.  We appreciate all of our members who made this show a success by participating and volunteering their time and talent.  The clean up committee was very prompt in dismantling the show and putting everything neatly in the bins in preparation for our  next exhibit in April, the Blessing of the Fleet.  Thank you to everyone for making our job easy.   Jane Hart, Faye Sullivan  and Ginny Versteegen
