Just noticed….five months from today is Christmas Day!  QVC is offering Christmas in July, if you feel the need to get started!


A few weeks ago, our Gallery was on the edge of disaster!  During the 65 mph storm, Tourism lost their roof and Bennett lost his home for a time. Our roof was rolled back on the corner causing water damage upstairs, and water in the front of the Gallery.  The awning was bend and battered, and a Miniature received water damage.  Insurance will replace the awning, after construction is completed……we were very fortunate! The Gallery was closed for only a day and a half!  Just noticed a Drone picture on the PAPA Facebook page.

Many thanks to Bill Marcum, for our new rack! One of his many talents, is creating with PVC Pipe…..looks great!  Gerry helped with advising!

July 31st is our next meeting.  This is also time for changing the Gallery Show. Just a note on Greeting Cards…..they must be re-entered on your entry form because they have a number just like a painting.  If you sell a card, it must have paper work, just like a painting and checked out of the book.

The Program for this month will be Plein Air Painting by Susan Lambert and Vickie Gingrich. The Challenge Painting is Cups, idea by Gerry Marcum. Next month, Mark and Joyce Ray suggested, Out of the Blue.

Not too early to begin working on Miniatures for our $10 Sale!  The cash generated helps pay our bills!

Congratulations, to Annie Strawn, on her Gallery Show at the Hartley Gallery, in Herrin, Ill. Her work is beautiful and full of color!

I have been YouTubing, again!  One interesting clip was on using Forecast Colors in your palette. Colors are selected three years in advance and are seen in fashion, decorating, and every aspect of life. Interesting,  check out  Fall 2018,
and then…..observe!


Board Members….let’s meet at 5:50, before the meeting. See you Tuesday!

Thanks, for all you do for PAPA.

PAPA Does Plein Air!

PAPA artists enjoyed Plein Air painting in May and may start back up in September. Be watching for the details or look on our classes and workshops page.

ITEMS OF INTEREST FROM THE BOARD

  • Unfortunately, the repair process next door at the Visitor's Bureau will be ongoing for quite some time to come. Both the extent of the damage and the fact that it's an historic building make the process slower than anyone would like. If you can, place the sandwich board off the sidewalk on the side of the street so that people can see it beyond the temporary wall.
  • 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.
