2017 People’s Choice Award – Howland Community OPEN Exhibition


February 6 – March 14, 2018 


Time again for the annual Howland Community OPEN exhibition — Our most popular exhibit because  everyone is invited to participate. Over 200 artists of all ages share artworks created 

in paint, sculpture  and mixed, and many other media. Plan on visiting more than once to see it all.

We are grateful to Ruth and Jim Howland for their legacy gift that supports our annual Community OPEN exhibit. Many thanks for the support of this exhibition from Citizens Bank.
