Thursday Painters

Paintings by members of the Thursday club will be on display at the Howland Public Library

Exhibit opens Aug. 12

The Beacon Thursday Painters will open an exhibit from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 12, at the Howland Library, 313 Main St. It continues through August.

The painters are a group of seniors, some experienced and some new to painting, who meet at the Beacon Recreation Center every Thursday. While the class has existed for over 20 years, it didn’t always have a permanent home. Mark Price, director of the Beacon Recreation Department, relaunched the program in 2014 with Jan Dolan as the teacher. As part of this exhibit, the group will be unveiling two new collaborative pieces.
