President’s Message

Hello everyone:

We are changing the format of the meetings to be more interactive. We will be doing Workshops and the details will be clearer as we advertise them. Bonnie Phillips will be doing the first one in February. If anyone has an idea for a fine art workshop, please let us know what you are interested in trying. I hope you are all as interested as I am.

Our Program for January is the Yearly Art Supply Swap. The Swap meeting is always fun and a way to move a thing or two out of your studio space, and maybe add something you find more useful.

The State Fair contests are coming up soon. Be aware of the website and the application process. Also think about the Plein Air contest with the State Fair. It also can be entered through the website. It is a lot of fun to paint at the Fairgrounds and is a great contest for us.

The Strawberry Festival is also coming up. The rules are out and can be downloaded from their website.

If anyone is looking for a position on our Board or in one of our Committees, we are always thankful for the application of your talents to our League. A few of the positions have been filled, but we need to fill more. It is rewarding work as far as I have seen from my personal experience. It also connects us closer to each other as a Society of Artists.

I am always praying for the good health and great success of you all.

Christopher Klein, President
