The winter season is sadly coming to an end but I'm sure that many of you have terrific summer adventures planned.  Not to be outdone, NCAA has several big summer events planned as well.  There will be dates to save on your calendars.
First and foremost, is The Art of Association Show at the Lighthouse Art Center.  This event will give us exposure with six other art groups from around Florida and includes two reception evenings.  I am looking forward to seeing a great variety of art and meeting many other artists.
The FAU Show has become an annual event and is in a great, big, space.  This show can accommodate larger entries and I hope that you don't take the theme so literally!  It would be great to really push the envelope here...especially as it is a university setting.
Our May meeting will feature Nilda Comas, a sculptress, who comes up from Ft. Lauderdale to teach at LAC School.  
Her class looks wonderful and she will discuss her work with us and talk about a workshop she is giving in Tuscany.
I will be feeding my soul throughout these hot months with several trips that I have planned and am eager to begin.  Let's talk travel at one of our meetings.....How about July???  I am sure that we all have art that was inspired by places we've been!
Happy days,

The Lighthouse Art Center is having a collaborative exhibit of 6 Art Associations from June 4 through July 26.  Art work should have been created since 2010 and not been previously displayed at LAC.  This show is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to mix with many other artists and have our work included in a major South Florida show....Thank you Katie Deits!!!
All work should be submitted to NCAA and be juried into the show by our group.
 Contact Linda,

This month I have information about our two big summer shows that have become annual events.
First, the show at Florida Atlantic University will be from June 4th to August 31st.  The theme will be "Tropical Sunsets" and I hope that this will be considered as a jumping off point for your creative juices....Go for it!

Please send a jpeg of your piece by April 27th to MathisonLR@gmail.com and Linda will send you the necessary paperwork.

This year we will each deliver our piece directly to FAU at 10AM on Friday, June 1st in front of the library. Pick up will be at 10AM on Friday, August 31st.
The Art of Association Show at the Lighthouse Art Center will be much expanded this year.  Several more groups from around the county have been added and the show has been extended.  We are still finalizing details but the dates have been set.
The show will open on June 1st and end on July 26th.
This year it will be necessary to jury in our work because of the increased numbers and there will be a fee of $20 for LAC members, $30 non-members.  This will cover expenses to the Lighthouse for publicity and refreshments.
Each group will do their own jurying and I will put out another Blog later this month with further details.
The Annual Student-Member Show is currently on exhibit at the Lighthouse Art Center.
Congratulations to:
Joe Pierre .... Fourth Place
Nina Fusco.... Honorable Mention
Emalee Andre.... Special Mention
Our demonstrator this month will be Manon Sander.  She is new to the area and Linda and I saw her work in a local show and felt that she would have interesting things to say.  Manon's work is about texture and intensity of color.
