September Program a Trip to France

The "Artz Tour de France 2" artists took us on a trip to Paris and rural France last night at our program. We enjoyed brie, chocolate mousse, wine, photos and paintings. It gave those that went on the trip a chance to re-live the adventure!  There will be a November/December art exhibit of the French work at the Henriott Group gallery, 250 Main St., suite 650.

The September 15th program features the artists that spent 16 days painting in France the month of June.  The "Artz Tour de France 2" group will share paintings, journals, photos, anecdotes and French snacks for an enjoyable evening "in Paris!"
