December 2008







From the President
By Gerri Aurre

The D'Art for Art cocktail party was again, a wonderful affair. Many members of North County contributed their beautiful work to this fundraiser and I want to thank you for your generosity. I also attended the dinner and "D'Art" and I can tell you that your paintings all have good homes. The crowd was enthusiastically marking down their choices and even bidding hundreds of dollars for the chance to be out there before the others. I really think that it's a win, win situation for all involved.

There will be 3 juried winners for Abstract Attractions, whose work will be exhibited in the left front gallery at the Lighthouse in January. I will be having a"Salon des Refuses" at my little studio space for all the entrants. The studio is at 221 Old Dixie Hwy., Suite 6, Jupiter(Opposite the cement plant!) It should be fun. This emphasis on the Abstract is in conjunction with the "Palm Beach 3"event that takes place at the Convention Center in January.

Nancy Tart was our November demonstrator. Her interest is in light and shadows and she worked all around the canvas of her still life. Nancy reduces her canvas to abstract shapes and draws influence from Wolf Kahn, among others. She mentioned the artist Joan Mitchell who said that women tend to tidy up their paintings and end up killing them!

Election of officers will take place at the December meeting. We will gladly take self-nominations before then. Peter Chepus, http://www.chepus.com/, will be doing a critique at the meeting, so be sure to bring something you are working on. Peter requests that you bring a black and white photo or Xerox copy of the piece you bring for critique. The meeting will be at the Gallery this month and holiday refreshments will be provided....let's be festive!

Reminder: Dues are renewable by January 1st.

January will be the last paper issue of CONNECTIONS. Stay current so that you can continue to receive updates of our BLOG and be able to continue to exhibit at our many venues. We will still be sending out paper issues to those of you who do not have computer access.

This $$$$$ savings will enable us to be involved in giving to more arts programs and scholarships....PLUS, it looks great and can be updated throughout the month.
