Café des Artistes

Dearest friends and art lovers,

This summer continues it’s wonderful kick-off. Our wonderful clients are smiling and the Gallery Guides are going like hotcakes. It was a fabulous June and May, almost as if we had two months of summer before it even started.

If you hand out guides and need more, please let me know by reply.

I want to repeat some wonderful news item from the last Cafe; Maine, as the most vacinated state in the most vacinated country, is the currently safest place on the planet!

Also from the last Cafe, I announced a new group for Mane artists and art lovers – a new Facebook group for Cafe des Artistes. I neglected to say, click on the banner to visit. Readers are invited to visit, join, and post your latest and greatest art.
