Update information from Alice Crawford about "Making Our Mark" Exhibition

Hi Everyone,

I apologize for not getting this out to you sooner. I’ve been without a computer for 6 weeks and could not tell you about the happy event that took place last Friday, October 24th. 

"Making Our Mark” Exhibition’s opening reception at Martha Street Studio (Manitoba Printmakers Association) was well attended. The studio has set up a wonderful exhibition of printmaking in the MOM program for the public to see.

There still is plenty of time to see the exhibition, the show runs until November 28th, 2014. I assure you the work is excellent!

Martha Street Studio -  at 11 Martha Street  Hours: Monday to Friday 10 am to 5 pm and open First Saturdays 10 am - 5 pm. They will be open this Saturday, November 1, 2014 for those who are interested.

If those hours won’t work for you, please contact me and I will arrange a private viewing for you.

I hope you can come out and see it, the artwork by all the wonderfully talented artists are really superb!
