Milford Art Stroll

By Anne Jenkins

What’s in a name? It’s the same great art, the same great town, the same great tour … we’ve just changed the name… so let us introduce you to the Milford Art Stroll. The name is more definitive than the Art Ramble. It proudly identifies who we are – we are Milford. So now when you boast about enjoying Milford’s year-round, self-guided studio & art tour to your out of town friends, you tell them to check out http://MilfordArtStroll.com to help them plan their visit. It’s a good way to show off all our talented  local artists, not to mention B&B‘s, restaurants and more.

Ma Nature’s artful creations continue to dazzle us – Horseshoe crabs and red knots arrive in the area soon, so mark your calendars for The DuPont Nature Center’s 3rd Annual Peace, Love & Horseshoe Crab Festival, May 19, 2012  from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, for details contact Dawn Webb at Dawn.Webb@state.de.us or call (302) 422-1329

The LadyBug Shop at 23 NW Front Street held a ladybug drawing competition for the Bud & Bug Festival and it was judged by the Anne Jenkins Art Gallery. The winners were… drum roll…  in category Age 3-5 years Briley Stevenson, Ages 6-8 years Mandie Beth Chau and Ages 9-11 years Samantha Palmer. Congratulations to the winners who receive a $25 gift voucher to the LadyBug Shop. The winning drawings are on display at the shop with the honorable mentions in each category alongside them.
