In keeping with the 150th Celebration, each artist of “Girls Just Wanna Paint” will be creating a piece of art using their individual perspective and style to capture images from in and around the James. All pieces will be offered up for auction during a Silent Auction from June 21, 2024 to August 9, 2024. All of the artists will also be exhibiting work of their own which will be on view and available for purchase.

“Girls Just Wanna Paint” was founded by Kelley Carey MacDonald in July, 2009 to create a supportive space for artists to share information, resources, opportunities and support for one another. Since its inception, the group has had a variety of artists who have been part of the group which fosters a strong sense of camaraderie, mutual respect, collaboration, courtesy as well as a unique openness and an enthusiastic and vibrant sense of fun that this group has become well known for. The “Girls Just Wanna Paint” group self-describe themselves as “A group of Boston-area painters who love to paint and have fun!”  A description that captures the essence and well-earned reputation that this wonderful group of diverse artists embody, excellence & a whole lot of fun!
