FROM OUR PRESIDENT

Well, there are about six weeks left of our steamy Florida summer.  In spite of this, or maybe because of this, art activities are starting to appear for the up- coming season.
 
The 10th Worldwide Artist Paint Out is scheduled from September 14th to 16th at Dubois Park from 9AM to noon.  You need to register at: www.LighthouseArts.org and
click on "Artist Paint Out"
 
Once again, the North County Art Association is invited to show our work at the Jupiter Community Center.  Email: MathisonLR@gmail.com for an entry form

Entries need to be submitted by September 21st.
Drop off of art is on Monday, October 1st, between 9 and 12 noon.
The Opening of the show is on Friday, October 5th, from 6 to 8PM.
This show runs from October 5th to November 9th.
 
The Lighthouse Art Center is hosting a juried exhibition of Florida Landscapes that will be shown from November 15 to January 5, 2013.  The last day for entry submissions
is on October 26th and the forms are available in the museum lobby.
What a great time slot.  Thank you, Katie.
 
Closest to my heart, (I am the chair-person of acquisitions) is the D'Art Event in November.  I have been promoting this event since its inception because it is the very best
evening of the entire Art Season!!!!  We have great fun!
This year the Lighthouse Art Center has extended the time that our art will be exhibited in the galleries to three weeks and the cost of the event is $250 for contributors.   It is $300 for all other guests.
The Artists Appreciation Party on November 4th is fabulous and the D'Art Party .....well, I can't say enough.  The dinner is delicious and I for one, have been able to become an art collector.
I own a work by Katie Diets, a wonderful  abstract sculpture and a photograph by the very talented, Linda Mathison!
Please give generously of your very best work.
 
Quite a few of the artists at The Village Art Studios have expressed an interest in having a live model in our space.  We are kind of interested in having models clothed in costumes for
a two to three hour period on Fridays.
We would like to invite artists to participate and ask for a $5 donation for the models.   In fact, please let me know if you are interested in modeling for us.
The first session will be on Friday, September 21 at 1PM at the studio.  Let someone at the studio know if you are interested, so that we don't become too crowded.
 
 I am off to Turkey for the last of my summer travels.  This year I devoted a lot of my travel time to seeking out the most contemporary art that is out there ...... WOW, it's been fabulous!   
Basically, I am lazy, but I've decided to commit to posting an Art Blog.....THERE, I'm committed. 
Watch for it late in September.  I want to share the excitement I feel about the incredible creativity out there...
 
Oh, Katie Diets has asked me to get a bus trip together for Art Basel, Miami this year.  It will be during the first week in December.  Details to follow in our next Blog.
 
Keep painting,
Gerri
