WAF promotes art at local schools
EASTON — Each year, the Working Artists Forum hosts an annual art exhibit at the Tidewater Inn in Easton called “Local Color.” This exhibit is held in conjunction with Plein Air Easton.
The juried art participants in the exhibit showcase their art for sale throughout the weekend at the Crystal Ballroom of the Tidewater Inn. From the sale of art during “Local Color,” WAF is able to designate a portion of proceeds to benefit the surrounding community elementary schools’ art programs.
As a result of Local Color 2017, WAF was pleased to help foster the visual arts at area schools by presenting gift cards valued at $150 each for art supplies from DickBlick.com to the schools’ art departments in six counties, which included Talbot, Queen Anne’s, Caroline, Kent, Dorchester and Worcester.
The Working Artist Forum is a group of 101 professional artists who are juried into membership, and whose members’ portfolios and background in painting bring years of recognition in achievements and awards. In addition, the WAF is committed to its community outreach to promote the arts. WAF again will host the 2018 “Local Color” from Friday, July 20, through Sunday, July 22.
