The monthly meeting for members of BeaconArts was a fantastic opportunity to learn about upcoming holiday events. Members enjoyed a presentation from Beacon 3D about the sculpture they are fundraising for, in hopes of acquiring it from local artist Lori Merhige. These meetings are a great way to learn about upcoming events and opportunities, and to network with other artists and business owners. Joining BeaconArts is a benefit to your business or project.
