June Events at the Matthews

June 8, 2021


It just FEELS like summer, doesn’t it? To celebrate, we have not one, but TWO contests going on!

First is our Summer Art BINGO which we hope will encourage you to be creative all summer long! Stop by to grab your BINGO card and get to creating!

We’ll be having drawings throughout the next two months and craft days at the gallery, so make sure to check out more on our website.
For those good with words, we just announced our summer  Writing Contest! Submit your poems or short stories that are inspired by our theme: Origin Stories. We can’t wait to read what you come up with!

Finally, we are excited to have children’s theatre back! These kiddos are working so hard already and will be performing at the end of June. Bring along the whole family for these fun shows.
