Francesca Anderson Fine Art, Portraits North at 56 Adams Street, Lexington is celebrating the gallery’s 35th Anniversary this Sept.

FA started her gallery Sept 15, 1983 at 132 Newbury Street in Boston.  They specialized in Contemporary Realism then as well as now.  They continue to show the work of artists from New England who paint, sculpt, print, draw in a realistic style incorporating all representational styles with impressionism and expressionism.  They represent 25 portrait painters as well.

The gallery moved to 8 Newbury Street in 1987 and to Lexington in 1990.

At first the gallery was not going to be in a “residential structure”, because they thought they would move to a commercial setting either in Lexington Center or Arlington.  But after contacting everyone who came to their first 4-5 shows at 56 Adams St, everyone said, “Why move ?  There is free and easy parking at 56 Adams St. “ !

At first count, the gallery has had approximately 300 – 325 shows in their 35 years.  The shows are theme shows because the gallery in Lexington is large.  They can easily accommodate medium to large works by 15 – 20 artists.

Their current Show is called The Best of The Best and is up through October 27, 2018.  They are showing the work of 18 of their best artists:

Loring Coleman 1918 - 2015, Michael Compton, Cambridge, MA; Cindy Crimmin, Acton, MA; Grace DeVito, Stamford, CT; Marina Dieul, Quebec, Canada; Merrill French, Harwinton, CT; Kate Gridley, Middlebury, VT; Cindy House, Warner, NH; Ralph Stone Jacobs, Whitefield, NH; Dave Kaphammer, Westborough, MA; Ed Little, Bridgewater, CT; Fred MacNeill, Concord, MA; M?ris Platais, Carlisle, MA; Karen Danstedt Roop, Concord, MA; Joyce Rowsell, Somerset, England; Will Sillin, Sunderland, MA; Monica Vachula, Hatfield, MA and Richard Whitney, Stoddard, NH.

There will be approximately 85-90 paintings on the gallery’s 2 floors.

Gallery Hours are Wed-Sat 10am – 5pm and Sundays 12pm – 5pm. The gallery is free and open to the public.

Thursday, October 18, 7 PM, at the Depot

With Dan Breen, Professor of Legal Studies at Brandeis University.

In the Spring of 1917, while most of Europe was mired in the calamitous First World War, the United States was enjoying a prosperous peace.  It's factories were humming along producing goods for embattled Britain and France, and its farmers were experiencing the kind of boom times few of them had ever seen before.  Why, then, did President Wilson deem it crucial for the United States to actually enter the war, committing Americans to the misery of the trenches?  We will explore that deeply controversial question, which a century later, continues to divide historians.

Free and open to the public!

LexFUN! is once again proud to host its special Halloween Parade for little ones on Saturday, October 27th at 10:00 am. 

Come participate with your children ages 5 and under in costume during our parade walk around the Battle Green. This is a long-standing tradition in our town and provides a safe and welcoming environment for our youngest Lexingtonians to celebrate Halloween in a family-friendly atmosphere. After the parade, join us for games, snacks, and more on the field in front of the Visitor's Center!

LexFUN! encourages parents to use their good judgment in selecting costumes. LexFUN! promotes a safe and inclusive environment for the parade, one that respects social, generational, and cultural differences. We encourage costumes that are family friendly (not scary for our little ones) and portray positive images to our children.

In addition to bringing your little tyke in costume, also please bring two other things to the parade:

(1) Please bring your child’s favorite noise making instrument to use during the march around the Green. 

(2) Please bring canned goods to donate to our Food Pantry drive. It is a great teaching opportunity to explain the importance of giving back to our community.

We’re looking forward to another great parade this year!

See you on Saturday, October 27 at 10:00 am in front of the Visitors’ Center. The parade will commence at 10:15 am.

Yes or No?  Know Before You Vote on Ballot Question #1

The League of Women Voters of Lexington will present a First Friday forum on ballot question #1 at Cary Memorial Library at 9:30AM on Friday, November 2nd, 2018. Question #1 would limit how many patients could be assigned to each registered nurse in Massachusetts hospitals and certain other health care facilities. A YES vote on Ballot Question #1 is a vote for establishing "patient assignment limits" for RNs working in hospitals and certain other health care facilities. Limits would be determined by the respective type of medical unit or patient; and the maximum number of patients assigned to nurses would apply at all times.  A NO vote on Ballot Question #1 is a vote against establishing patient assignment limits. November 6th is election day in Massachusetts.

The Committee to Ensure Safe Patient Care is leading the YES campaign. Donna Kelly-Williams, RN, President of the Massachusetts Nurses Association, will speak for a YES vote.
The Coalition to Protect Patient Safety is leading the NO campaign. Anu Puri, Senior Director of Health Care Finance and Research at the Massachusetts Health and Hospital Association, will speak for a NO vote. 
Each side will have 20 minutes to explain their position, followed by questions from the audience.

This program is the second 2018-2019 First Friday forum hosted by the League to promote awareness and understanding of public policy issues.
