MEETING INFO

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.

Thanks, to all of you, that participated in the Open Houses! Special “cudos” to Jenny Fuller, for organizing the celebration for the New Show!  Many paintings were sold, new customers we’re gained, and a good time was had by all!  Sunday afternoon was well attended, with delicious treats by Martha Brown and Carol Hudson, painting demos by Rebekah Thuline and Sandy
Johnson, and special music by Nyla (Carol Hudson’s granddaughter) and Scott Morris!

Okay, the $10 Miniature Sale, is swiftly approaching!  To date, we have almost 400 minis!  We could still use help from 12:30-4:00 and more minis.  Lunch will be served around noon....the date is Nov. 30th.

Jerry Speight, retired Art Professor at MSU and PAPA Member, will have the program at our next meeting, Nov. 26th.  He will share information on how he creates his vibrant, multilayered, abstract paintings in acrylics.  The Challenge is Umbrella, idea by Peggy Forthman, Ann Mayo, and Linda Cox.

Remember the date change for the Dec. meeting to the 17th! If you wish to participate, we will have a painting exchange. Bring a 11x14 or smaller painting, gift wrapped, all may bring a snack, and we will party!!!

I just read a wonderful thought, by Catherine Pulsifer.  “Give thanks not just on Thanksgiving Day, but everyday of your life. Appreciate and never take for granted all that you have.”  So true!  Cherish the time with your family and friends.  As always, thank you, for all you do for PAPA, you are the best!

Dues due, Vera Rodgers and Karen Switzer.

Happy Thanksgiving, 

Dutch
