Thank you.

and also thank you to ...

Thanks to all the members who contributed their time and talent to making this a great show, to the Chairs of the Program committee, the members who donated to the raffle, created the program and award certificates, donated time and food to the hospitality tables, and in general shared their art and enthusiasm with their fellow artists.

I wish to personally thank and give credit to Ruth Morrill who made my job easier by photographing the exhibition and providing the images to both the website and HAL blog.

Last but not least, a special thanks to our juror of awards Jerry Weiss, a painter and professor of art at Lyme Art Academy of Fine Art.

If anyone wishes to purchase a painting, please call: 203-776-9300.

HAL encourages other artists in the community to join our group.
