Surface Expressions Exhibit Highlighted on SDA Blog!

I don't usually post here other than the first of the month, but I think this news is worth sharing right away.

Eve Jacobs-Carnahan recently submitted an an abridged version of her talk about the pieces in the 2016 Surface Expressions exhibit at the Chaffee Art Center to the SDA website. In highlighting the fact that our Vermont SDA Chapter had 3 exhibits last year, accomplished in part with support from an SDA Small Event Grant, the SDA blog featured her article and images from our exhibit in today's post as a means of bringing awareness to SDA's grant program. Thank you to Eve for bringing such wide exposure to our exhibit and exhibitors!
