Fay Chandler’s ‘Just As I Am’

“Just As I Am,” a 50-year survey of the work of Fay Chandler, artist and founder of The Art Connection. Fay Chandler’s altruistic nature has encouraged her to celebrate her 88th birthday by having a survey of work from her 50-year career in September 2010. The survey, running from September 16th to September 27th from 9am to 5pm daily, will be at the Cyclorama Building of the Boston Center for the Arts on Tremont Street. Mark your calendars! Opening Reception and Art Sale: Thursday, September 16, 5 to 7 pm. All sales will benefit The Art Connection, and at the end of the exhibition, Fay will donate any unsold work to our community nonprofit partners. Leading up to the event, we’ll be looking at Fay’s career from our recipient agencies’ perspective, with stories and more posted monthly on our website.
