  • 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.


A new year brings new challenges and remember Challenge paintings can be framed, named and priced for sale. They will be hung together near the back of the Gallery under the title of the challenge.

Merry Christmas, to each of you!  This season is passing

Thanks, to each of you that donated paintings, and worked the $10 Fundraiser!  Special thanks to Mark and Nora, for leading the set up and to Jenny, for taking the lead, on Saturday. Despite the weather and aggravation of no Credit Card Machine, we took in $3280!  The sale was extended a few days, making $3360....fantastic!!!  I might add, a good time was had, by all.

As winter weather approaches, just a reminder of our policy for closing.  If McCracken County Schools close, we close, also. One more thing....should you be unable to work the day you chose, contact Liz Hudson, 270-210-9790, to reschedule. Liz has done an amazing job keeping the Gallery Open!

Congratulations to Anne Strawn for taking first place in the
Immanuel Baptist Art Show!  More info on the Website.

Remember the change for our Painting Exchange to
December 17th at 7:00.  Bring your gift wrapped, 11x14 or
smaller painting and a snack .... enjoy a fun evening!  (Painting not required.)

The 2020 Challenges will be coming to you, soon!  Diane
Ireland’s January Challenge idea is Open Door.  January 28th is the next meeting and Gallery Show change.

Look forward to seeing you, on the 17th!  As always, thanks for all you do for PAPA!
