A congratulatory tip of the paint brush to the Rome Art Association as members celebrate its 60th anniversary.

Goals of the association are to promote and encourage talents and abilities of members by means of group work, demonstrations, art programs, exhibitions, to stimulate public interest and appreciation of fine arts; and to encourage facilities in Rome for these purposes.

One of the manifestations of these ambitious plans will be the group’s 59th annual Membership Show at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, at the Rome Art & Community Center, 38 W. Dominick St.

The group’s website describes how through the efforts of Ruth Salton the existing association was founded in May 1958.

Besides its regular meetings, the association also sponsors numerous other events and activities designed to encourage artwork in people at all levels of ability, young or old, of all types.

If you love and appreciate all arts, the Rome Art Association is for you.
