To the Editor:
Thank you to the Newtown community and neighbors for their generous support of the 44th Annual Juried Art Show presented by the Society of Creative Arts of Newtown (SCAN).
Our business and individual sponsors enabled us to offer over $1,800 in cash awards for excellence. Included in these awards this year was the very special Betty Christensen Award in honor of the well-known Newtown artist’s 99th Birthday! Betty has been and continues to be a wonderful contributor and supporter of SCAN.
Artists from within the SCAN membership as well as non-member artists provided a rich, varied and high quality visual experience. Thank you to our volunteers who worked tirelessly to create a welcoming atmosphere and a delicious reception. Special thanks to the Cyrenius Booth Library, a fitting place to carry on the legacy of the founders of the organization in 1971, Ruth and Larry Newquist, who envisioned bringing our community together through the arts.
