January will be the last paper issue of CONNECTIONS.

From the President
By Gerri Aurre

The Winter season will be in full swing (I don't know about that, THIS year) with the "Palm Beach 3 Show" at the Convention Center from January 15 to 18. Our "Abstract Attraction Show" is scheduled to be hung at the Lighthouse on January 8th to celebrate the spirit of Contemporary Art. CONGRATULATIONS to the three juried winners: Emalee Andre, Camille Babusik and Tanya Pfeffer-Witzel. The well known, Palm Beach artist, Bruce Helander, was the judge. We must thank Sonya Davis for her support and confidence that our artists would provide quality work for the Lighthouse Gallery.

I'll be having a Salon des Refuses, of a sort, at my studio on Old Dixie Hwy. sometime after the Lighthouse opening.

As some of you know, I was lucky enough to spend the entire week in Miami at Art Basel. The most amazing thing is that I still don't think that I saw it all. Miami becomes an Art City. It oozes Art. If you haven't had the chance to experience the Miami Art scene, I highly recommend a drive down to the Wynwood District. The Margolis and Rubelle Collections, alone, are worth the trip.

Our December meeting in the main gallery was the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit. The refreshments provided by Muriel Hall and Bea Basara were over the top and simply wonderful. Thank you both so much. Peter Chepus was, as always, a very positive and encouraging speaker as he critiqued our work. Peter will be teaching figure drawing at the Lighthouse school this year. The evening was definitely highlighted by the appearance of 7 year old, Sawyer Williams and his artwork. Beth's son seemed to really enjoy getting up and talking about his work.

News: Please, try to change your artwork every month at our venues. There are always people waiting to hang theirs and I would rather not get involved in taking down other peoples work.

Tess Lindsay sold a painting and Linda Mathison sold a photograph at the Corner Cafe.
