MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT


November calendar is filling up fast with great events for artists.
 
The month opens with the Artists' Appreciation Party on November 4th at Lighthouse Art Center.  This is just a fabulous party, to thank all contributing artists to the D'Art event.
 
Then, D'ART, on November 10th......WOW.....What fun!  Ticket sales are way ahead of last year .....But, we can still fit you in....It's one of those events where I just love to dress up in my best "artiness".  Everyone enjoys every minute of this evening.
 
I anticipate a wonderful demonstration this month by Randall Scott.  Randall teaches realism in Art here at LAC.  He will be showing his segment of the PBS series "Journey of an Artist" as well as doing a demo for us.
 
Many of you have entered the Landscape Show which opens on November 15th and runs through January 5th.
 
Thinking about landscapes, Cynthia McCallister has invited us to do Plein-Aire at her family's riverfront house.  Our first session will be on Tuesday, November 6th at 10AM. The address is 114 W. Riverside Drive.
 
We will be having a Board Meeting on November 7th to discuss elections in December.   It would be a good thing to have some new candidates on the slate. Think about it.....we need the input !!!
 
Ah, Bill Sabino has suggested that since the treasury is quite solvent, we have pizza at the December holiday meeting.....he will even deliver!

Also, I think that it might be fun to have an artists' gift bag.  How about each of us doing a small painting or piece of art and we can each "draw" an art work to take home.
 
I am going to New York early for Thanksgiving this year just so that I can attend the Metropolitan Museum’s Andy Warhol Show: REGARDING WARHOL:  SIXTY ARTISTS, FIFTY YEARS.
(some of you know that I was Andy for Halloween this year)   His influence was immense and finally being fully recognized. There is also a significant exhibit at the Guggenheim of Picasso's black and white paintings that I won't miss.
 
Finally, do try to attend ART BASEL IN MIAMI this year.  The dates are December 6-9.  The Art Miami portion has been expanded and I expect exciting Art everywhere in Miami.
 
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!
Gerri
