Oh,   my  goodness…..!  I do hope you have visited our new show at the Gallery, it is amazing!  Your work is excellent, yet continues to improve with each show.  We have gained six new members this month, four are contributors to the new show.  Isn’t that just exciting?!

Our $10 Miniature Sale is swiftly approaching.  A great big thanks to those of you donating miniatures or $$ to our fundraiser, your support is much appreciated.  If you are unsure of the time you volunteered to work, check the bulletin board at the Gallery.  We could use a few more hands at 4:00 on Friday for the set-up.   Jan Farley is the coordinator and Mark Cope is cooking BBQ for lunch on Saturday….sounds great!  This is an important day for our finances.

The December meeting is the Art exchange.  Bring an 11 x 14 or smaller framed painting of yours, gift wrapped,  and a Christmas treat for our fellowship time.   December 26 at 7:00.

My painting was selected for the Paducah Christmas Card.  Thanks to all of you that participated in this Challenge.

Well, almost time for our next meeting….November 28th.  The Challenge is This Way or That.   Sandi will have our program ….The Seven Elements of Art.

Board members….let’s meet at 5:45.

From our house to yours…..Happy Thanksgiving!  Count your blessings, enjoy great food and family and then…….put up your Christmas Tree!

See you the 28th, 
Dutch
