We are delighted to bring visual arts to the annual Pennington Memorial Day concert and introduce our new theme for 2016-2017, The Art of Upcycling! Originally scheduled for Pennington Day, this pop-up gallery needs dry weather so we are hoping to have better luck this weekend. Watch for us to be marching in the Pennington Memorial Day Parade in the morning then come see us at the concert.
