MARCH Newsletter

NOTE: The gallery is closed to the public on weekends until mid-April 2018 and we will be closed on Monday nights for classes due to renovation – business meetings still held on the 4th Monday of month at 7:00 pm.  Watch for emails from Murfreesboro Art League on openings.  The gates will be open for parking in the Cannonsburg Village on Monday nights.  Do not park on any sidewalk. Don’t park on the inner circle, so fire truck can get through. Don’t park past end of garden, so fire truck can get to the hydrant. Thanks!

>DUES ARE DUE!  Please bring to business meeting or mail to Murfreesboro Art League at either 1109 E. Northfield, Murfreesboro, TN 37167 or 417 Pioneer DR, Smyrna, TN 37167.  See membership at murfreesboroartleague.blogspot.com .

> The drive-through gates are now always closed.  Someone from the Murfreesboro Art League will open the gates thirty minutes before any scheduled meetings like the Monday night meetings and renovation schedules for you to drive your cars back to the Gallery.  Be prompt since Mark (or another person) has to stay at the gates until the meetings begin, at which time the gates will be closed.  If Cannonsburgh Village is not open, you will not be able to walk to the Gallery unless someone opens the walk-through gates.
