Two Fun 2014 Summer Events Coming Up – Mark Your Calendars and Join Us!

We hope you've had a good spring!  With summer around the corner we’re looking forward to getting together with UCSC folk, old friends and new.  We’ve planned two great events and hope you can join us.

ON SUNDAY, JUNE 22, we’ll be visiting SoWa market, in Boston’s South End.  It’s New England’s largest open-air arts market.  

We’ll meet at 11:30am at Cafe Green Light.   Click here for directions.

We will browse locally grown/produced food, handmade craft items, and art, and then eat lunch from a wide selection of food trucks.

ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, at 11 a.m. we’ve arranged to have a docent –led tour of the exhibit, “Turner and the Sea” at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass.  In the first full-scale examination of Joseph Mallord William Turner's lifelong preoccupation with the sea, this exhibition features iconic works spanning the artist's career from his transformative Academy paintings of the late 1790s and early 1800s, to the unfinished, experimental seascapes produced towards the end of his life.”—PEM website.

We’ll meet in the museum lobby at 10:30 a.m.  Tickets are $18 each.  (Unfortunately you can’t use any passes or memberships to get in for less.)

We can have lunch together at the Gulu Gulu Café.

The Turner Exhibit tour requires an rsvp by Friday, August 1.

If you are planning to come to either or both of these events, please rsvp on the B-SLUGS Facebook page or email beatapanagmailcom

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
