De-Installation of the group show: LOOK AGAIN: FOUR LOCAL ARTISTS NANCY LeGENDRE, KAREN KOCH-WESER, KATHERINE COAKLEY, AND LEIGH SLINGLUFF  at Rocky Neck Cultural Center. Endicott faculty and student exhibition is coming next. The center is open all year.

Photos: Paintings by Leigh Slingluff coming down from Rocky Neck Cultural Center 2017 group exhibition. This show pulled from a colony of 4 artists that meet to paint en plein air, for years. They are not exclusively plein air artists, but they are when they meet up. Slingluff was awarded second place at the Cape Ann Plein Air Quick Draw for the second year in a row.
