MAC Memo to the Membership

Hello All. We are changing slightly the monthly contact with our members. Instead of a President’s Letter, you will be receiving “MAC MEMOS” on activities and news items.

So, MAC MEMO #1 is for July 2015 and begins with the great news that we have been awarded a $40,000 grant to help with the purchase of the land at 225 North Main Street (next door), its preservation and the development of a reflective ART PARK within its natural setting. Each one of you who donated funds to help with this project is making this future extension of the Arts Center possible and the Board thanks you sincerely. If you haven’t yet donated and would like to, please feel free to do so by mailing a check payable to Marlborough Arts Center to us at:  231 North Main Street, Marlborough, CT 06447.

Obviously, that is also the address for our next 4th Friday @ the Arts Cafe on Friday, July 24, starring the return of DEEP ELLUM. Concerts begin at 7:30, but doors open at 7:00 with admission being only $10/person at the door. BYOWine. Other refreshments are available. Come early, shop in the Gift Shop, settle in, and get ready for a wonderful musical experience. DEEP ELLUM is really Rich Johnson and Jon Swift, an acoustic duo who play what they term “Americana” and what their audiences term a mix of favorites to relax with and enjoy. Then there is the dobro, a sound you must hear!

And, this is also where you member artists will drop off works you’d like to enter into our Artist Member Show, with cash prizes for winners, scheduled for August-September. Please see our website for details. Diane Sandler is coordinating this event; you may call her at (860) 295-8242.

There are no classes planned for the summer because vacations make it difficult to plan consistent classes, but always check our website for the latest news and changes. Let us know (leave message at 860-295-9389) if there is a class you would like to take; we will make it happen!

“Enjoy” is the operative term for the summer and we hope you enjoy some of this time with the Arts Center.
