Art Guild Classes Underway


The Art Guild of Port Washington has resumed classes for children and adults.
An electrical fire at Elderfields Preserve in 2011 during Hurricane Irene forced the art guild to suspend all classes and activities. In September, installation of a fire alarm system allowed The guild to once again open its doors to the public. Elderfields Historic Preserve is located at 200 Port Washington Blvd. (on the right side when traveling south on Port Blvd., after Stonytown Road, just before St. Francis Hospital) ArtGuild_122614
