DEAR SUN SPOTS: A few weeks ago there was a Sun Spots about an art show in Hallowell asking for submissions. I saved the information for a friend and now find I need the information again. Can you please print it again? —Dee, Farmington
ANSWER: Of course! This was originally printed in the Jan. 15 Sun Spots. It sounds like a wonderful event. Hallowell is definitely a happening place when it comes to art! There are also wonderful restaurants there to celebrate after the awards ceremony.
