Now congratulations to the award winners. Best of show was awarded to Mari K Moehl; first to Jeffrey Smart Baisden; second to Sharon Hester; third to Anda Chance; Nell Moores Award to Carole Bardes; and Honorable Mentions to Melissa Miller Nece and Pat Lentine. Great show everyone!
Our last meeting at Pat Lentine’s house went well. Thanks Pat! Seemed weird to not have lunch, but the Orlando area members did not disappoint as there were plenty of snacks and drinks to sustain us. Work was given back from the show, with minimal confusion and we discussed the recent show and upcoming retreat and convention. Our program was our display for the convention in July. Basically, we are making a photo display using 4x6 drawings of water - “Florida, a Water Wonderland.“ It is important to have your drawing in a horizontal format and it must be exactly 4x6 to fit the display. Any paper is fine, just not as thick as museum board and must be 100% colored pencil. I’ll need these by July 10th to take to convention, you can mail to me in a sturdy envelope. Any questions? Give me a call!
The retreat in Leesburg went well, too bad we didn’t have more snacks - ha ha just a joke! It was great to see everyone and to view their works in progress. Maybe we will see some for show -n-tell at the next meeting.
Hope to see you in Atlanta this summer at the 23rd Annual International Exhibition. The conventions are a great way to meet other CP artists and see their artwork. The workshops are fun and informative, I always learn something new. At the membership meeting you will see all the entries for the exhibit, including your own. Sometimes you win cool prizes and this year we have another trade show. For more info, go to cpsa.org and read all about it!
Our next meeting will be August 29th, in Live Oak - mark your calendars now! (If you are taking part in the Live Oak Artists Guild’s Autumn Artfest you can deliver your artwork then if you like.)
Congratulations to our Chapter members who were accepted into the International Exhibition: Jeffrey Smart Baisden, Anda Chance, Sharon Hester, Marilyn Jones, Mary Beth Lesko, Suzanne Marcil, Mari K Moehl, Glinda Pennock, Nancy Rhoads, Mona Weidner and ME!!!!!!! Woo hoo! Way to go!
