I was accepted onto the Board of Directors at the Cheshire Art League with the assignment to improve the leagues on-line presence. This included a complete redesign of the leagues website. I attended most functions and recorded the events for web-page entries. 17 league events were documented between 2009 and 2011, starting with the 2009 annual exhibition shown below. (I resigned from this assignment in 2011 to pursue my on-line frame business Painting Frames Plus, and unfortunately the new web designer for the Cheshire Art League did not upload the events that I recorded. I will try to re-post them on this site as time permits. The below pictures are just a sampling from this exhibit.)
