    As many of you are aware, we lost our dear friend Fran Marze recently. Fran was an extremely prolific painter and her family has decided to donate the bulk of her work to McMurray Art League and the Pittsburgh Pastel Artists League as a fundraiser. So save the date to join Fran's friends in celebrating her life and her art. We will have an exhibit, sale, and reception Saturday, September 17, 2-6 PM, at the McMurray Art League studio.

    Fran was a member of many groups and had lots of friends. Please spread the word about this event in her honor.
