This month has been filled with all kinds of things that are complicated, so at the board meeting last Tuesday we could grab a hold of things.
What was discussed at the Board Meeting, the annual show. We will now try for September 8,9,10 of 2017 at the Bellport Community center. We will have a Friday night opening plus a reception on Sunday afternoon prior to take down. All details will follow in the month to follow. The summer months will not work for us as the Fridays we use for drop off will be not be available. A short show of only one day and take down will be out of the question and too inconvenient for most, since lugging racks around is a giant undertaking.
This year on June 13 we will be presenting out scholarship check at the Gillette house where we will meet the recipient . So, everyone try and make this to show support from club. We will have a viewing of some of her work as well as refreshments. Be there please!
Tuesday night June 20thwill be a discussion led by Elaine Faith Thompson. The issues of “The Business of Art” will be discussed. I am sure there will be lots of questions about legal issues as well as marketing and networking issues. Refreshments will be available. Please attend.
Bus trip seems to a revisit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, August 12. Again, details will follow in the month ahead.
The newsletter, is getting harder for me to do, so I do apologize for its delay.
We have accepted Ruth Johnsons hand in volunteering to aid our sunshine committee.
We need to send our support to Dan Cook, and to Fred Gray, and those we can reach out to.
Our insurance policy is up this August as well as our web server. We will renew both as they are essential to our club. Costs have risen, but we can still hold our financial stability.
Christmas party: again, we will continue to hold it here at the Gillette house. Date: December 5th. details again will follow next month.
We will be seeking artists who can perform a demo for us. So, next month we will try and have something unique for us.
