then they went home....way too soon. But, you have to leave to return....and return they will!! May 2022 these artists will be returning to join newly juried artists and the race will begin again.
Like all of us in New Bern, these artists fell in love with this special place and relished painting the beauty and history unique to this area.
Thank you and stay safe until your return.
Fondly, the citizens of New Bern.
