MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Welcome to a new art season.  This year we are going to try some new venues for our members. North County Art Association will be taking a booth at the Jupiter Fall Fest on October 7th. This event is happening under the Indiantown bridge and will be from 12 to 5 on that Saturday. The board has decided on a maximum size of 18x24.  Delivery will be right to the site by 11AM that morning. Just let Linda Mathison, mathisonlr@gmail.com know you are coming. Wish us good weather and good luck....if we have a good experience, we will join in other Jupiter town events.

The annual show at the Jupiter Community Center will be from October 6 to November 10. Entry forms are available from Linda Mathison, mathisonlr@gmail.com and are due by September 25th to the Town art committee. Art delivery is on October 2, between 9 and 12. Opening reception will be on Friday, October 6, 6-7:30. This is a show we have been invited to for over twenty years.....I hope we have a great showing.

Katy DiGioia will be running our September meeting.  She has asked Adra Brown to be our demonstrator.  Adra is teaching oil painting at the Lighthouse on Thursdays. Her demo will be about painting shadows, values and colors in still lives.

We all wish our sincere condolences to Carol Steinberg on the passing of her husband Bob.  Carol organized NCAA and was our president for many years.

Have a great month and start painting!

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

The Lighthouse Art Center Members Show was a big success this year. There were many new faces in the galleries and a lot of interesting work. Our own, Linda Mathison received an Honorable Mention for one of her beautiful naturally dyed pieces.

Their Children’s Show is next on the agenda and NCAA will be giving prizes on the Elementary, Middle School and High School levels. Our very capable judges will be Katy DiGioia and Karen Reinhart. We will also be granting a scholarship this month for tuition to the summer art program.

It is only in the planning stages, but, hopefully, in the fall, we will be having our own NCAA show.  The Board is looking for venues, possibly at one of the Jupiter town events. Any suggestions would be really welcomed.

I have been very pleased by the variety and depth of presenters this season.  It isn’t always easy to find new and interesting people who want to share their stories.  Luckily, Linda Mathison and I are always on the prowl around the county….We enjoy socializing with artists and groups….and it keeps us engaged as artists.

Our speaker this month will be Janeen Mason.  Janeen is quite dynamic, as many of you already know.  I asked her to tell us about her art and career. She has done a fine job at LAC and it will be fun to hear more about her.

I am off to Washington to see the new Museum of African American Art and then on to New York for the Whitney Biennial, The Frieze Show and the Met Fashion Opening.  Next month I will give
a full report!

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

We are coming to the end of another season in South Florida and
I am sure that many of you are ready to settle down and make some Art!

The Lighthouse Art Center's late spring and summer catalog is out and I particularly  like the Open Studios for portraiture and figure study. The Member show has been hung and awards will be presented on April 20th, from 5:30-7:30.

Our demonstrator this month is Gary Antonio.  Gary has had a long career as an abstract painter and I am sure that he will have interesting antidotes to entertain us with.

Have very happy holidays in April.
Gerri
