April Gallery Show: It’s a Mystery!

The Permanent Collection of the Randolph Arts Guild

Come out to help us at the Randolph Arts Guild while we show our permanent collection!  We know the who, what, when, where, and why or some of our donated pieces of artwork, but not everything about every piece.  Our hunch is that our community may be able to help us solve some of the mystery of our permanent collection!  Some items will be labeled while others will have blank pieces of paper available to write down recollections of the artwork and any information that may be helpful for us to identify the artist, the value, and the cultural significance of the pieces.  Join us for this fun round of Mystery ART!

Tues., April 3, 2018 @ 5:30 – 7:30 pm
