  • This is a town-wide, mostly Lyme St. event, that brings about 6000 attendees. The Florence Griswold has booths and venders everywhere, from the street to the river. We have two areas to work in, the upper garden, and on the terrace of the Huntley-Brown House, which faces the museum.
    The upper garden will only be able to allow for five, perhaps six additional painters as we have to be very careful of staying on the paths and not getting into the flower beds.
    *Timing for this session to be confirmed, most likely 9am - 4pm with an hour for lunch.
    To reserve your place for July 27, a $20 deposit ( non-refundable) is required to cover the model/models by June 10. 5 have already registered. ADDITIONAL SIGN-UP LIMITED TO THE FIRST 6 MEMBERS WHO HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN SELECTED TO EXHIBIT IN ANY CSOPA MAJOR SHOW.
