... close-up look at Melrose's Memorial Hall
As Jackie Wattenberg says in her story on the recent MACA art show, this was the best. The Stringers managed to get a basketful of photos during the three-day event -- of the artists, of their work, and of the hundreds of people attending what has become an anticipated annual event. Unfortunately we do not have all identifications, so off-hand comments will have to do.

All ages enjoy a good art show.

Performing at the MACA Arts Festival were eight students of music teacher Dorothy Travis. They included Hudson Rubbins, Lilah Drafts-Johnson, Jordan Rubbins, Andrew Zucco, Ann Gilbert, Eva Gertz and Katherine Costa.
Pretty girls come with purple bows. At the right are writer/reporter Jackie Wattenberg of both the Melrose Mirror and the Melrose Free Press; and Jennifer Barbati, who is a wildlife artist from Tewksbury.
