It's Convention Time!

September has arrived and October is right behind it. October is not only a fun month, what with Halloween and Fall in full bloom, but it is also the time for decorative painting conventions. This year we have two occurring in October. The following is a quick rundown of both, with information and links to each. Be sure to do your best to support these great traditional painting conventions. (Please note - All images & their content in this article are copyright protected by their respective owners.)

Up first, in chronological order is the New England Traditions or NET show. Producing painting conventions since 1999, this year's convention will run from October 4-9, 2022 at the Best Western Roya Plaza Hotel in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
