MEMBERSHIP MEETING Monday, March 6, 1 p.m. We are instituting a “Getting to Know Our Artists” series and hope you will attend! To begin the series, our Curator Lindy Hall will be telling her story. Lindy will present a 15 Min presentation on her creations. The Cedar decorated wooden shelves she creates and her unique decorated pillows are just a few projects she makes from repurposed objects. Come to the meeting for this great introduction to our Curator/Jury Chairman! Looking ahead, our April meeting will feature Terry Norris, with an Introduction to Calligraphy and his former experience, and he will be teaching a Calligraphy class in April–stay tuned for more information on that. All members are urged to attend meetings and help us plan for the year, and guests and interested parties are always welcome.
CLASSES: Call or come by the gallery to reserve your spot!
The RUGGED BARN PAINTING workshop had to be postponed due to a health-risk situation, and we do not yet have a new date, but if you’d like to be put on the list, we will notify you when we know more. Just call or come by the gallery to reserve your spot. This is an acrylics workshop with Phyllis Stapp to guide you through painting an old barn with hay bales, trees, and blue sky; great opportunity to create your own vision of the same painting. $40.00, all supplies included.
Martha Koelemay’s INTRODUCTION TO OIL PAINTING class is under way and going well.
Thursday, March 23, Phyllis Stapp and Patti Presley will host a MATISSE CUTOUTS class for all ages. More information on this one to follow.
Barbara Holt continues her INFORMAL 3RD-SATURDAY CLASSES, which don’t require preregistration.
OPEN STUDIO every Saturday. Bring your art supplies and use our studio to work on your latest art project. You don't have to be a member and there is no fee. Just come between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and stay as long as you like. We also have a good collection of books about many topics related to art. Come in and use our reading room.
