A Note from Becky~

It seems that summer has come to an end so quickly, but when exactly is the “end of summer”? Is it when I tearfully say “Goodbye—see you next summer” to the last camper to leave the last summer art camp of this year? Is it the first day of school?  Is it simply September 22nd? Or does the warmth of the sun just allow summer and fall to meld together before flowing into winter? I love summer—the sun, the heat and the bustle of the people out and about before staying indoors for the cold winter—so I like the image of summer not having a finite end but rather slowly moving into something new, wonderful and beautiful. That is what is happening here at CALC too. Our summer camp program, which hosted over400 children, just came to a close but with this comes an entire new slate of classes for children and adults along with new exhibits in CALC’s galleries. This fall we will celebrate the unique talents and resources of local artists and farmers at Art on the Farm on September 16th and we will come together again on November 18th to celebrate the arts in Carlisle at CALC’s mARTini Auction. So, even though I will be the first person in Carlisle to don a down jacket, I recognize there is so much to look forward to as we move into the next season.

We would not be able to offer any of these classes, summer camps, exhibits, events, or community programs without the support of our members, artists, donors, sponsors, volunteers and attendees. Thank you for your role in CALC, in our community and in bringing the arts to the lives of everyone in Carlisle. Please mark your calendar so you can celebrate with us this fall!
