Photographic Elements

Stop in to see this wonderfully creative photography!

MSAS appreciates the Miller Family who sponsored the reception.

Pathways, Crossroads, Detours

“Pathways, crossroads, detours…life is a journey full of options. We set our foot to the path and onward we travel. Likewise, the creative quest. Whether by the path of familiarity, the crossroad of a new direction or the detour of a forced change, we forge ahead accumulating experience for future steps. My artistic sojourn, represented in this exhibit, expresses both, comfortable and newly explored territory.”

Please join us as the MSAS features one of our very own Resident Artists, Michelle Mulligan. Opening reception from 5 to 9 pm on Friday, November 14th, is sponsored by the Minerva Area Federal Credit Union.  Refreshments will be served. Kristen Mulligan Exposito will be on keyboard providing musical entertainment.
