ACA visits the State House

State Representatives, artists, and community members alike gathered last Wednesday, July 20th, at the Massachusetts State House to celebrate the work of 11 Arlington artists, currently on display at the State House.


ACA and our amazing artists, along with Senator Ken Donnelly and State Representative Sean Garballey, at the Massachusetts State House.

The show was initiated, in part, by Senator Ken Donnelly, who contacted Linda Shoemaker, ACA’s Executive Director, about a special opportunity to exhibit work by local artists – and Shoemaker jumped at the chance.


Touring the beautiful Massachusetts State House!

11 Arlington artists were featured in the exhibition: Adrienne Landry, Marjorie Glick, Pamela Shanley, Vicki Paret, Olga Yakovleva, Nilou Moochhala, Connie Chamberlain, Al Hiltz, Philip Young, Lorraine Sullivan, and Jessica Young.

During the reception, we received a tour of the beautiful State House by State Representative Sean Garballey, enjoyed a surprise visit by the President of the Senate, Mr. Stanley Rosenberg, and celebrated the work of these amazing Arlington artists.

Additionally, we would like to thank Hannah Buntich and Debra Woodman again for their continual efforts in encouraging and supporting ACA.


The show is up until August 9th, so make sure to check out this dynamic and expressive artwork while it’s still on display!


Thanks to everyone who made this exhibit possible!
