Convergence Art Guild awards Chef Steve Schopen and Molasses Grill a Certificate of Appreciation for the February 21 “Benefit Breakfast for the Arts.” Steve Schopen is an artist and a member of the Guild. Steve and Karen Schopen organized the Art-themed Breakfast Buffet and donated all the proceeds to the Convergence Art Guild. Guild members helped serve and prepare the fabulous array of food featuring Eggs Benedict. Many of the artists' works were on display throughout Molasses Grill during the event.

“For Artists By Artists” is the Convergence Art Guild’s motto with members representing Visual, Performing and Literary Arts. Guild member Gene Curtis said, “The Guild’s goal is to educate and encourage anyone interested in the arts while providing opportunities for its members, both professionally and in the community.”

The Guild meets at 6 p.m. the first Monday of the month at the Molasses Grill, 63 South Main Street in downtown Halifax. For more information on Convergence Art Guild or to view images of some of the artistic pieces produced by Guild members, visit
