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.

WHAT'S ON THE PROGRAM?


Diane Ireland will present the program on Surrealism using a few hands-on activities.


If you have ideas for a program or you'd like to hear about something specific, send us your ideas/requests on the Connect With Us page.

Dutch's Doodles

Like a November snowfall……. this Doodle is arriving early!!

Scott Morris, is retiring from keeping the calendar for the
Gallery.  For many years, he has kept our doors open by finding replacements when you could not fulfill your
obligation, or filling the void himself.  He has been our Ambassador by recruiting new members and encouraging the membership.  He and Gae feel they need to pass the
torch so they might spend more time with the family in Colorado! Please thank him for the excellent job he has done for all of us.  He will continue to be an active member!

So……Liz Hudson has agreed to be our Calendar Girl!  Please, call her at 270-210-9790 if you need to reschedule your commitment.  She will also need subs, so say “yes” if she calls.  Thanks, Liz, for filling this most important position!

Mary Ann Huebschmann, will now fill the position of scheduling refreshments after our meetings.  A schedule for 2019 will be passed at the next meeting.

Just a reminder….when snow cancels McCracken  County Schools, the Gallery will be closed.  WPSD-TV will carry this schedule.

Only a few more days until our $10 Miniature Fundraiser.  We still need more miniatures! Please leave them at the Gallery, by Nov. 21st  to be labeled and counted.  Jan Farley does an excellent job making sure this event runs efficiently and smoothly. Creatures of Habit, at 406 Broadway, provides Dickens attire…..free!  Visit their store soon to select your look, then tell them it is for PAPA Gallery and Dickens Saturday.

The next meeting is Nov. 27th, at 7:00.  Diane Ireland will
present the program on Surrealism, using a few “hands on” activities.  The Challenge is Gathering, idea by Tommy Fletcher.

Don’t forget, the Dec. meeting will be on the 18th.  If you
wish, bring an 11 x14  or smaller, framed and gift wrapped painting for the painting exchange. Also, bring a Christmas treat and expect a fun evening.  Checks will be given, but no program.

May your Thanksgiving, exceed your expectations, as we pause, to count our many Blessings.

As expected, Chad Nelson did a fantastic job, programming the Gallery Show!

Thank you, for all you do for PAPA!
