Happy New Year!
Our winter retreat will be here in Live Oak for a change and is scheduled for the weekend of Jan. 23rd. I am really looking forward to this one - I need to draw! Also looking forward to seeing everyone - hope you all can come!
Our “It’s Colored Pencil” show is in Orlando at the City Arts Factory this year. You should have received the entry form, the postmark deadline for that is Feb. 1. You can enter up to 3 pieces in this show, so we should have a good sized exhibit.
Our next meeting is planned for Feb. 21 and we are hoping to meet in Ocala at Hershberger Studios. You can bring your entries for "It's Colored Pencil" to the meeting and we will take them to Orlando for you.
Our Nov. 8th meeting was held at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center in Dunedin. Our program was on framing, presented by Glenn Stevenson of Florida Frames. We also celebrated our anniversary - with cake, naturally.
Dues were due in November, both National and our chapter dues. I renewed mine on line and it was easy. Contact Betsy if you still need to pay our chapter dues.
See you soon - Chris
