The Art Guild will open its 2015 members showcase exhibit at the Elderfields Historic Preserve with a garden party reception and awards ceremony on Sunday, May 17 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Awards of merit and the annual Terry Shkuda Award for Broadening Creative Pursuits will be presented and there will be an acoustic music performance by Chris Kinnear.
