I hope this e-mail finds you well.  We had the largest number of entries in our "Anything Goes" Show in recent history-147 entries!  It has been a fabulous show and this is the last weekend for viewing it so if you have not seen it then we suggest you make it to the gallery before closing this Sunday at 5pm.
Wickford Harbour Fest is this Sunday from 12-5pm and there will be a shuttle from the high school taking people to and from the Town beach- so you should be aware it may not be possible to actually park down at the beach on Sunday.
Have a great weekend!
Pick up for your art in the show is Tuesday 11-6pm.

Dear Wickford Art Association Members,

As Awards Chairperson of the Rhode Island Art Association, I would like to congratulate you for being selected to receive the 2013Distinguished Friend of RIAEA Award! Your dedication and service to art education has been recognized as exemplary. The organization wishes to thank you for your contribution, which has increased community awareness of the importance of art education in our schools.


I look forward to honoring your achievements at the Fall RIAEA Awards Ceremony at the Wickford Art Association on October 25th, at 6pm. In the meantime, please send me a digital photograph of your staff or logo, as this will be used in our winter newsletter article featuring the award winners and their accomplishments. When your award is presented, you will also have the opportunity to make brief acceptance remarks. We hope you will bring colleagues, family and friends to share in this honor.


Congratulations again on this well deserved award!!!
