Art Alliance To Hold Meetings

The Franklin County Art Alliance continues its monthly meetings, open to the public, with a program featuring a pastel demonstration on Wednesday, October 8 at the Grove Family Library. The alliance's business meeting will begin at 7 p.m., and the program will follow. Please note that the time and location are new this year!

The October 10 meeting will feature a demonstration in pastels by artist Eva Keller Carson. Carson has traveled abroad as a pastel artist, and will share her tips for traveling with "all the necessary equipment" and painting "en plein air," and will demonstrate her technique in pastel.

A graduate of the University of Virginia, Carson has been a member of the Maryland Federation of Art since 1995, and a member of the Board of Directors of MFA since 1997, serving as president from 2001- 2003. Her work has been featured in American Artist magazine, and has been exhibited throughout the Mid- Atlantic area.

The public is welcome to attend. For more information, call 717-267- 1396.
