In the January meeting we had a great critique session with pieces from several members. Jean Smith won $16 in the 50/50 raffle. And Barbara Janecka was voted artist of the month for her painting “Dory.”
We met our new newsletter chairperson, Karen Lockhart. She has a lot of great ideas but needs help from the membership to fill the newsletter up with will YOUR NEWS. Karen has asked for members to send a short paragraph of your medium, what you are working on now and where you are showing, selling, anything else, etc, etc. She plans to start with a 4-page edition featuring 2 or 3 artists per month. Email Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org with your bio or any other news that you would like to share. When emailing Karen please write GVAL Submission in the subject line.
