This event is happening under the Indiantown bridge and will be from 12 to 5 on that Saturday. The board has decided on a maximum size of 18x24.  Delivery will be right to the site by 11AM that morning. Just let Linda Mathison, mathisonlr@gmail.com know you are coming. Wish us good weather and good luck....if we have a good experience, we will join in other Jupiter town events.

The annual show at the Jupiter Community Center will be from October 6 to November 10. Entry forms are available from Linda Mathison, mathisonlr@gmail.com and are due by September 25th to the Town art committee. Art delivery is on October 2, between 9 and 12.
