uly is picture perfect at the MACK. The 11th Annual Juried Photography Exhibition is featured in the gallery this month. These exciting images were selected by juror George Ligon, a New York native with 34 years’ experience in education and

long-time co-owner of a photography studio. Join us for the opening reception on Friday, July 11 from 6-8 p.m. This event is free and all are welcome.

❚ Summer Arts Camps are up and running. Our traditional camps are for children 5-15 years of age and are held Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. - noon with a fee of $25. Please note any food allergies as a light snack is included. Families, remember we can arrange to accommodate any needs, such as enrollments for multiple children or camp scholarships.

❚ There are just a few spaces left in some of our camps. Call the office for registration assistance. While there may be limited availability for campers, there is always room for volunteers. Volunteers greatly enrich the Summer Camp experience for the children. You could make a difference. Students in need of civic service hours or rising high school seniors, please contact the MACK to sign up to volunteer for our camps. We will happily provide a letter of recommendation and document hours of volunteerism for future applications.

Here is what is scheduled for July:

❚ Participants in the Summer Art Camp: World Art - Go Global will probably come home dreaming of worldly travels. They will study various cultures and their unique art forms. Beginning July 7, the camp will keep students engaged with the creation of Australian art, African masks and Islamic tiles.

❚ Beginning July 14, the Summer Painting Like the Masters Camp will expose students to a variety of painting styles, techniques, and artists. Each student will learn about an individual artist (Monet, Picasso, MC Escher, and others) and create a masterpiece using similar methods.
