Grab lunch or an early dinner at The Steele Pig. It’s really a treat to find a place like The Steele Pig, where food is made with care and dedication. Just point to anything on the menu – you can’t go wrong! Take a peek at their lunch specials or see what’s for dinner. Take a few moments to enjoy your meal, talk over everything you saw at the show, and feel good about supporting a local restaurant while making your tastebuds VERY happy. (Bonus: Go to The Steele Pig *after* seeing any Friday or Saturday Temple show and your ticket stubs earn you a discount on dinner!)

Laugh the evening away at The Temple Theatre’s production of Clue: The Musical. One of the absolute gems of Sanford is The Temple Theatre. Local productions, special events, music, comedians, the Temple has it all. If you remember Clue the movie or the board game, you’ll love this take on the famously funny who-done-it.

Art Angels Spreads Joy With Salvation Army

Art Angels Spreads Joy With Salvation Army

At the November 15th general meeting, Sanford Brush & Palette Club members came bearing gifts. Bags and bags of new art supplies were piled into a crate near the elevator doors, which quickly overflowed into a larger pile on the floor.

The supplies were collected for The Salvation Army of Lee County‘s Christmas “Joy Program” which provides toys and clothing for Lee County children. The donated art supplies are part of our Art Angels program and will supplement some childrens’ gifts, filling where items are needed. It’s our way of continuing our mission of promoting interest in the visual arts, while also helping out another local nonprofit organization and supporting our fellow (younger!) artists.

A huge THANK YOU to our generous members for helping in this endeavor.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We just wanted to take a moment in the midst of the hustle and bustle to say thanks.
Thank you for supporting local art, local artists, and creativity in Lee County.
We love our community!

Happy Painting, Dear Ruth!

Happy Painting, Dear Ruth!

Some people think of Julia Roberts, pizza, and pre-Steel Magnolias nostalgia when they hear “Mystic, Connecticut.” Sanford Brush & Palette Club members will instead smile warmly and say, “That’s where Ruth Chandler lives now.”

After we learned that Ruth was moving at the end of October, we were pleased to shower Ruth with cards at our artist reception and awards night at the 52nd Annual Art Show. She was surprised, and responded with a card to us:

ruth-chandler-thank-you-note

We will miss Ruth – her friendship and her amazing work. We wish her many, many happy painting years in the setting of her new beginning. Mystic just got a lot more special.

We love you, too, Ruth.
