Welcome Fall with the AGM!

There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!
Percy Bysshe Shelley

Ahhh autumn… Always a great source of inspiration for art, with its beautiful reds and fiery oranges. The stifling heat of summer gives way to cool, crisp breezes, and yellow school buses make their way through red and gold littered streets.

It’s great weather to be outdoors, and we’re definitely excited about our upcoming golf tournament. What better way to celebrate the return of cooler weather than by spending an entire day away from your office cubicle and golfing with friends? For non-golfers who still want an excuse to spend an afternoon away from the office, you can enjoy an outdoor lunch and silent auction while supporting the arts.

Excited about going back to school? I remember looking forward to field trips — a day out of the classroom! (Hmm… recognizing a pattern here…) Teachers: AGM field trips are always free, and we have docents on hand to talk to your classes. Always good to get kids into art early, in my humble opinion.

Anyway, in honour of autumn, here’s a peek at some wonderful autumn-themed art:
