These paintings are on display through the end of December. The bank is located in the same plaza as the Whole Foods market in Bedford. You can go in and view the paintings any time the bank is open.
Joe Smiga will be exhibiting his photographs at various craft shows this fall. Linda Feinberg and Joe Smiga will be sharing a table at the Holiday Market downtown Manchester (1000 Elm Street) on Saturday, December 10th.
Artist of the Month award for September by the Manchester Artists Association was given to Linda Feinberg for her mixed media  painting "Follow Me" which is about the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument.

This area memorializes the U.S. Army’s 7th Cavalry and the Sioux and Cheyenne in one of the Indian’s last armed efforts to preserve their way of life. Here on June 25 and 26 of 1876, 263 soldiers, including Lt. Col. George A. Custer and attached personnel of the U.S. Army, died fighting several thousand Lakota and Cheyenne warriors.
Various tribes banded together to win this battle, but lost the war. The memorial is very spiritual and explains more than can be said in this short writing. 
This mixed media painting is 9” X 12”, matted and framed under glass, 13” X 16”. $125

Next FOA meeting is the last Wednesday of October, Oct 26th, 7:00 p.m. Contact treasurer, Linda Feinberg if you would like more information.
