Blue Ribbon Members' Show

Blue Ribbon Members' Show
July 18 - August 24
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 18, 6-8 pm

South Shore Art Center's Blue Ribbon Members' Show is particularly important to us because it represents everything we stand for: community united in creativity. Our Biue Ribbon Show is one of two shows annually at which our members are guaranteed an opportunity to showcase their work. Having the word 'member' in the exhibition's title is intentional; this is a member benefit - with participation limited to Art Center members in good standing.
