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.

OPPORTUNITIES TO EXHIBIT



  • Discovery Park of America invites local artists to submit artwork for the Artist Showcase. The showcase is an ever changing series of temporary exhibits, each lasting 3 - 6 months. There will be an Artist Showcase Reception held in honor of the winner. How: Complete guidelines, application and submission deadlines found here!

Information for Members

Congratulations, to all PAPA members winning at the Woman’s Club Art Show!  Our organization was well represented!

Thanks, to Vera Rodgers, for the excellent job she has done organizing our Plein Air Painting, this month!  We have had so much fun, being together, painting, eating, and struggling through the elements to make our art!  My
favorite photo is of Vera, sitting at a picnic table, literally bundled head to toe trying to stay warm in the north winds!  Now that is suffering for art!  Two more Friday’s...this week at CSI Park, behind Courtyard by Marriott near Kentucky Oaks Mall and the next at The Home Place at Dover, Tennessee.

Don Sahli, Impressionistic Artist, from Golden, Colorado will be doing a painting demo for the meeting on May 28th.  He was the last apprentice of the great Ukrainian Artist, Sergi Bongart.  His style of painting and use of bright colors is amazing!  Don will be teaching a workshop for us, June 6,7,8.

The Challenge Paintings continue to be so popular with our guests!  This month’s Challenge is Out on a Ledge, idea by James Johnson.  Next month’s, Turning Point, idea by Dale Houseworth.  We usually do not have a Challenge for June, but bring one and a dish to the Annual PAPA Picnic. It is an evening of delicious food and fantastic fellowship!  More details soon....reserve June 25th.

Last month, we welcomed five new members!  How exciting!  They are: Sidney Andrea, Carson Brown, Ronnie and Debbie Dupree and Sonja Halstead. Amy Wiley joined in April.  Get to know these wonderful people!

As always, thanks, for all you do for PAPA!

Those with Dues due......Valerie Admunson, John McLaren family, Carol Tribou, and Susan Lambert.
