Springs Invitational Art Show
Red Room-Breahna
Red Room by Benjamin McHugh
The 42nd annual Springs Invitational Art Show will open on Friday July 31, from 4 to 7 p.m. The show has been a much anticipated Ashawagh Hall event since it’s beginning with artists Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and John Little being original participants. A percentage of the sales go to the Springs Improvement Society’s scholarship fund. This year’s curators are Eric Ernst and David Gamble, so it should be an interesting group of artists they have invited to the show. The exhibit will be up until August 16, and the hall will be open daily from 1 to 5 p.m.
