YIKES!  Time for another Doodle....sneaked up on me!  Time is passing quickly....have you noticed that too?

We survived the Eclipse and Fall Quilt Show, now is the UNESCO Convention. We have a couple opportunities to meet the delegates.  Sunday, Sept. 24th, 4:00-5:30 at the Maiden Alley Cinema will be a Public Forum with Renee Shaw of KET, followed by a reception from 5:30 - 8:00 at the Yeiser Art Center.  Next, is A Paducah Life Soirée, Tuesday Sept. 26th, 5:30-6:30 at the public Library.  This is the first convention in the United States for this group....quite an honor for Paducah!  I keep thinking of the possibilities of portraits created from this multicultural group!

Hope you are busy working on miniatures for our fundraiser the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  Jan Farley will be in charge of the event.  This is most important to our Bank Account!

Tuesday, Sept. 26th, is our next meeting.  Anne Strawn will be sharing her art, background, and philosophy on creating art.  Her work in the Gallery certainly reflects her talents and versatility in using many mediums.  Don't miss this program.

The Challenge Painting is the Paducah Christmas Card.  Remember, it is The Downtown Farmer's Market selling Christmas Trees.  We need many paintings as these will be seen by all the visitors to the Mayor's Office.

Our sympathy to Margie Smith in the passing of her brother, Paul Cissell, a former PAPA member.

No Board Meeting this month.  See you Tuesday...thanks for all you do! You are the BEST!
