MESSAGE FROM GERRI

This month let's plan on taking advantage of our beautiful Florida weather  with a "Picnic and Paint Day".  Bring your lunch....I'll bring dessert.... 
MARCH 13......DuBois Park.....10AM.  It would be fun to show our paintings after lunch.
 
We are all looking forward to the Annual Lighthouse Art Center Student - Member Show will be opening on March 29th.  Watch Email for more info. or stop at LAC for an entry form.
 
We can once again thank Katie Diets for so generously offering us a summer show at the Lighthouse Art Center.
Plans will be getting underway this month for the June opening of "Art of Association".  With more local groups involved, this could be the highlight of our artistic year.  Hopefully, we will be serving a delicious pot luck dinner so that the evening takes on its own special flair.
 
Another event to show that we are not just a seasonal destination is the Florida Atlantic University Summer Art Show in the atrium.  This year the focus will be on Tropical Sunsets.  Entry forms will be posted on the Blog next month.
 
With all of these events planned......START PAINTING!!!!!!!!
 
Tickets are still available for The Cafe Beaux Arts Ball on March 3rd.  Julie Beaumont and I have been painting for weeks to decorate the huge tent that will be arriving in the parking lot at Gallery Square North next weekend.  I am very excited that this event is taking place right here and expect that WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A WONDERFUL EVENING.  It will be interactive, more casual and very French.
 
The 3rd Thursday event at The Village Art Studios this month is to benefit Busch Wildlife.  We will be offering "animal inspired boxes" for donations at the door.  Last month we were most successful with our painted glasses for Peggy Adams Animal Rescue Fund.....Stop by.
 
Our March demo will be by Sarah LaPierre!   Everyone admired her dad, Joe, and she has become quite a skillful painter.  Sarah will have much to offer.
See you then,
Gerri

FROM OUR PRESIDENT

February is the month we are lucky enough to host two International Art Shows at the Palm Beach Convention Center. This week, from the 4th to the 12th is the" International Art Fair" and the 17th to the 21st is the" Jewelry, Art and Antique Show". I am mentioning this to emphasize that every day of these events there are free lectures by prominent people in their field. Check on line for programming each day.

If you are really ambitious, there is" Art Wynwood" in Miami, from February 16th to 20th. I think that the art being made in Miami right now is as avant-garde as you will find anywhere. It really is a very direct trip down I-95, exit at I-195, and take the first exit to North Miami Ave...the show is tented right there.

Our super event in this part of Florida is the "Cafe Beaux Arts Ball" at the Lighthouse Art Center on March 3rd. This year we are going to enjoy an evening in Paris right under a tent in Gallery Square North. The committee is excited about this new venue and the evening is going to be more casual and interactive....Treat yourselves!!!!!!!

Also in the works is "The Art of Association" show at the Lighthouse Art Center in June. If you remember, this show was quickly put together last year with a pot luck dinner provided by NCAA. This year I am chairing the committee and it will be on an even larger scale. Katie Diets has given us six weeks of gallery exposure and we will jury in the work and offer prizes.....Start painting, drawing, sculpting!!!!!!!!

On Thursday, February 16th there is going to be a wine tasting at the Village Art Studios and Original Elements to benefit the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. Admission is a minimum donation of $5 for a hand painted glass to sample our wines. Artists will be donating a portion of their sales that evening as well.

xxxxx Happy Valentine's Day
Gerri
