"One of my goals with curating shows at CMEE is to introduce an audience who might otherwise be unfamiliar with the incredible museum right in their own backyard," Goff explained. "For many who joined us during the Thirty Squared @ the Children's Museum
artists' reception, it was their first visit."
The show will debut on Friday, July 7, with an opening reception taking place from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., and remain on view through Tuesday, August 1.
"With another amazing collection of art and artists lined up for Mostly Fish,
I hope to raise the profile of the Museum even further," Goff shared.
This exhibition will celebrate the aquatic life found in the homes, bays and oceans on the East End. Some of the artists featured in this show are Scott Bluedorn
, Rossa Cole, Kimberly Goff, Edward Joseph, Ann Lombardo
, Dave Nadal, Stephen Mannino, Lynn Matsuoka
, Connie Oshrin, Leo Revi, John Rist, Cindy Pease Roe, Gary Schatmeyer, Barbara Thomas, Pamela Thomson, and Maureen Travers.

"We're delighted to have another opportunity to showcase the work of so many talented local artists. This exhibit in particular is perfectly aligned with our mission to build strong connections within the East End community by providing playful experiences," added Steve Long
, the Museum's President. "And, since the theme of this year's Family Fair Fundraiser is Animals: From A to Z,
we couldn't ask for a better fit. Kimberly must have been reading my mind."
