Potter Jane Strauss Novick joins LBGE

Come by to see a new collection of pottery by Jane Strauss Novick. She hopes everyone loves her 'pots', but we have more than pots... serving sets including trays with dip bowls, platters, bowls, vases, and a selection of soap dishes in a variety of colors and patterns. Very reasonably priced from $12-50.

Thanks Pam!

As part of our Art in the Afternoon series, Pam Carlson led a painting demonstration while working on a canvas featuring summer hydrangeas from Essex's Main Street. We had a great turn-out with art-lovers and art-makers. Please join us next Sunday August 22nd for poetry and watercolors with Sister Maria Joseph Nace.

"White on White - The Connecticut River Museum"
Louis Guarnaccia
As part of his current exhibition at LBGE, "The Essence of Essex", Louis Guarnaccia painted a striking scene of the Connecticut River Musem and the Mary E. Last night, a fire at the museum damaged the third floor of the building - thankfully no museum pieces were destroyed, though conservation work is necessary to combat smoke damage. Crews are working away as we speak - and the museum director hopes to re-open soon.
