The PAPA Gallery

"Behind the Scenes at PAPA," a tell all about what-all goes into making PAPA run and make our art shows possible.  This is the topic for the program at the next meeting, September 24th at 7:00.  Hopefully, this will remain “G” rated, but you never know....better not miss this one! The Challenge is Beginnings, idea by Havyn Prude.  Christmas Cat is the Challenge for October, idea by Linda Roberts.

After each meeting, I regret not having mentioned the PAPA Library! The books are colored coded by subject and videos are on the top shelf. The yellow pad is for signing out the item.  Put the book title, your name, date checked out and when returned, the date returned. This is an excellent resource for inspiration and education, plus...it is FREE!  Enjoy.

Hope you are painting or thinking about your miniatures for our Annual Fundraiser, November 30th.  A sheet for signing up to work, will be available at the October meeting.  By the way, that will be the next show change!

Christmas Open House will be November 2nd and 3rd.  Jenny Fuller is planning the evening event to showcase our new show.  Carol Hudson and Martha Brown will host the Sunday afternoon event from 1:00-4:00. There are many opportunities for you to help.

We welcome Chad Nelson to the PAPA Board!  At the last meeting, the membership voted to have him fill Tony Kent’s place.  We look forward to working with him!

Thanks to the person that updated our printer!  We are most grateful!

As always, thanks for all you do for PAPA!  See you Tuesday evening.

ITEMS OF INTEREST FROM THE BOARD

  • The Paducah Cigar Company, 217 Broadway, proposed that if PAPA artists wished to display paintings depicting cigars at their store, they would do so and offer them for sale. NOTE: Personal experience from one of us indicates that you will need to talk with the owner as the workers don't seem to know about this.
