I just want to take a moment to thank you and all who work at the Wickford Art Association. The WAA is a special place. It has been a great support to my re-entry into the art world. I joined the WAA four or five years ago, can’t remember. It was a huge leap for me as I had not painted since college (around 35 years). WAA offered me a friendly, inspiring place to put my work “out there”. Having been recognized by judges over time has validated my work as an artist and continues to motivate me to seriously and relentlessly explore varied expressive directions. The WAA community has positively impacted my artistic growth. I am grateful.

Just wanted to let you know.
