MINIATURE SALE!

​​Jan Farley has graciously volunteered again to manage our annual fund raiser this November. It may seem early to be planning but.....

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.

September is passing quickly…..have you noticed?  Fortunately for the Gallery, reconstruction next door is progressing more quickly than first thought and our isolation will end by late October.  Our new awning will go up as soon as possible.

I hope you are working on miniatures for our Annual Fundraiser! Your participation in this event is most important, not only by providing mini’s, but your presence on Nov. 24th to help with the sale.  Jan Farley will be in touch with a schedule soon. As usual, please leave your paintings on the counter in the back of the Gallery to be labeled and stored.

Christmas Open House, for downtown Paducah will be Sunday, November 4th.  Hours for the Gallery will be 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Our next meeting, is September 25th at 7:00 pm.   Cleda Curtis, from Oran, Mo., will have the program.  Cleda is a Professional Artist, extraordinary Teacher, Mentor and friend to many in our Membership.  When I think of her, the next word that enters my mind is Values!  We have learned so much, from this wonderful lady.  Be there, as she shares her art!

The Challenge is Light Weight, idea by Carol Tribou.  Next
month’s….Composition, idea by Diane Bay.  Hasn’t it been fun sharing these paintings with visitors?  Your ideas and paintings have been Amazing!!

These hot days of summer, have so good for YouTubing!  I first saw David Dunlop on KET2, Fridays at 4:30, he is a Landscape Painter.  He explains his composition, historic colors, the Impressionistic Artist he mimics, and works in beautiful locations.  Check him out…..DavidDunlop.com.

Charles and I, not much I, programmed the thermostat and it
seems to be working!!!  The temps are set at 73 degrees, 9:30am through 4:00pm then, 80 degrees from 4:00pm through 9:30 am. Adjusting the thermostat will not be a part of your opening and closing routine.  A reminder is posted.

See you next Tuesday!  Thanks, for all you do for PAPA!         Dutch

ITEMS OF INTEREST FROM THE BOARD

  • It appears the repair process next door at the Visitor's Bureau will be ongoing through the end of October. 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.
