Coming up at the Dedham Guild

September is going to be an exciting month! We are presenting our September Artist of the Month Series: Luke Barry... Mini Artist

Luke is Guild-artist Jill Barry’s 7-year old son. As a child with autism, Luke often uses his art to communicate. Sometimes whimsical, very colorful and always expressive, a limited number of Luke’s drawings will be on view and available for purchase during September. 100% of the proceeds from sales of Luke's drawings will be donated to Community Autism Resources and Luke's Crayon Fund.

We also have some great events planned around this series:

Guild Member Jill Barry will be at the Guild working on a mosaic piece. She will be available to answer questions about her mosaic-work and her son's drawings
