Call to Paint – Tuesday, 11 June 2013 – 8 AM – Hyland House, Guilford, CT
Greetings to All,
I sort of feel the heart of our season has begun when we paint at Hyland House. And having it on the schedule early gives us plenty of time to finish our paintings and get them framed up for our July/August exhibit – likely our only show this year.
The weather looks a bit iffy at this point, so if the forecast still looks questionable or doubtful on Tuesday morning, be sure to check the blog before you go. Remember that even if you have signed up for the email link, that email that goes to your desktop does not get sent until many hours after I post it. So any time you’re not sure, check directly with the blog.
To make it easier to check in, you might want to add the blog to your favorites, so you don’t have to enter the title each time.
Again, although I’ve posted for 8 AM, just come when it’s right for you. And if you get there at 8 and I’m not there, just find your place and start. We can paint anywhere – front, back, side... Some people set up across the street on the sidewalk, and some people paint the neighboring frontages. Just remember to keep a respectful distance from the private homes.
I hope to see you there.
DIRECTIONS: HYLAND HOUSE – 84 Boston Street, Guilford
From I-95, take Exit 58; Drive south on Rte.77 through the traffic light at Rte. 1, and on to the north end of the Guilford town Green. Turn left (east) for a half-block on Broad Street, then right (south) on Park Street (clockwise around the east side of the green). Turn left (east) on Boston Street. Go about two blocks. Hyland House will be on your left.
Park on the south side of Boston Street or on the side street just to the west of Hyland House. If you park opposite the house on Boston Street, please leave some windows between cars so that those who wish to paint from the opposite sidewalk may do so with a clear view. If you do not find a proximate parking place, you might want to pull into the driveway to the west side of the house and drop your gear before you park, but be mindful that you may need to be patient backing out into traffic on Boston Street. There may be a few parking spaces available in the driveway.
