All are welcome to attend Intown Concord’s Annual General Meeting and Locally Famous Art Auction on Thursday, March 13, 5:30 to 7:30 pm, at the Carriage House at Kimball-Jenkins Estate, 266 North Main Street in Concord. Attendees will have a chance to connect with fellow downtown Concord devotees, while being treated to delicious food from Common Man Concord, complimentary beverages, the jazz/swing stylings of local musician Kenny Weiland, and the presentation of the Community Impact Awards.
Additionally, Sarah Chaffee of McGowan Fine Art will be the auctioneer for Intown’s 3rd Annual Locally Famous Art Auction. A matchless collection of paintings depicting Concord’s charm has been created especially for this event. Any Concord aficionado will want to grace their home or office with these one-of-a-kind pieces by Melissa Miller, Bob Tewksbury, Byron Carr, Byron Champlin, Saad Hindal, Keith Testa, Karina Kelley, and other local luminaries. Special thanks to Ryan Linehan and Lee Roy Johnson of Kimball-Jenkins School of Art for hosting our painters and offering instruction.
