"America" Exhibit

 In 1968 Simon and Garfunkel recorded "America", a song creating a cinematic vista telling of the singer's search for a literal and physical America seemingly disappeared, along with the country’s beauty and ideals.    
Milton Art Guild members make their own interpretation of this song with paintings, photography and mixed media. This "must see" show and sale will stir your emotions and give you an uplifting and often serious sense of the America we love.
Our Opening Reception was a great success with record breaking attendance and three sales. Attendees enjoyed complimentary refreshments from Milton's own Po’ Boys Creole and Fresh Catch and Gooey Donuts.
The "America" show runs until August 7th.  Our gallery is open Wednesday through Saturdays from 11am until 3pm.  We are located at 310 Walnut Street in Historic Milton, Delaware.  

Thanks to our Opening Night Sponsors for Refreshments!
