SHARPEN YOUR SKILLS at each meeting in multiple ways! 


Bring a painting that's giving you trouble and at the end of the meeting get insight and advice from your peers to help get past the problem.

As I create the “Doodle”, on the first day of summer,  I am enjoying my porch and the overcast coolness of the day!  This is amazing!  Hope you have plans enjoy this day, too.

The PAPA Picnic is Tuesday, the26th at Schultz Park, on the Riverfront, behind the Farmer’s Market.  Bring a dish, chair, guest, and hearty appetite and enjoy  pleasant evening.  You many not know this, but a Cook Book was created from of these picnics…..that is how delicious the food will be!  Mark Cope will be cooking all sorts of meats and Gerry and Bill Marcum have the other details and plans under control, so come and enjoy!  Back to the Cook Book…..ask Bill how easy the task was?!  We do have memories!!!

Next meeting, July 31st, will be time to change the Gallery Show!  The Challenge is Cups…..so many possibilities there, the idea by Gerry Marcum.  Plein Air Painting will be the Program given by Susan Lambert and Vicki Gingrich.

It may seem early, but…start working on your Miniatures, for our fundraiser. With our snowy winter, and cooler spring, we realize the importance of this event to the support of the Gallery!

Our sympathies continue with Mary Ann Huebschman in the recent loss of her son.

One more thing…..in case of rain, the Picnic will be in the Gallery.

Happy Summer!           Dutch
