MESSAGES FROM OUR PRESIDENT


Here we are again....in the midst of another busy holiday season.!!
NCAA will be celebrating on December 10th at the Lighthouse Art Center.  This year Bill Sabino will be bringing pizzas and we will follow this with dessert, of course.
Bring a small painting and we will do a holiday art exchange....Should be fun.
 
The first week in December means ART BASEL, MIAMI.  More of you are planning on a trip down and I hope that it will be an amazing and enlightening experience!
I will be in Miami for a few days with Katie Diets, Judy Fleisher and Susan Barton.   We should be able to bring back some exciting ideas for our local art scene. The art is all over the city.  It takes days to even attempt to cover over 20 venues.  Art Basel, at the Convention Center in Miami Beach and Art Miami ,in the Wynwood District, are an absolute must see.
 
We have been invited by The Town of Jupiter, Art Committee, to participate in a FAVORITE PET OR ANIMAL SHOW. NCAA has been offered a special discounted entry fee of $5.  This show will include photographs, paintings, drawings and sculptures. This show is from March 1st to April 26th.  Entries must be submitted by January 14th. Contact Linda Mathison at:
MATHISONLR@gmail.com  for the form.
 
Katy DiGioia, Karen Reinhart and I have confirmed several working dates with the Lighthouse Historical Society.  Kathy Glover at the Lighthouse was very helpful and encouraging. We will be having a pleine-aire day, right at the base of the Lighthouse, on Friday, February 22nd from 10 to 2. Additionally, we will have a painting day and show on Saturday, March 23rd.  This will be on the lawn behind the museum.
 This is taking place during baseball season when the Lighthouse is busiest.
 
On February 9th, the Historical Society is having its dinner/dance: "Rock the Light" and they would appreciate donations of paintings of the lighthouse.
 
Also, we are about to be offering a new display area at "Kitchen Works!" in Jupiter.  Thanks to Penny Robb for suggesting us to her friend, Doreen. It sounds like they will be teaching really interesting cooking classes and I hope that Doreen finds great success.  She will be installing display ledges for easy installation of our artwork.  Check it out at: www.kitchenworksjupiter.com
The Holiday Sale at Gallery Square North is on Friday, December 7th, from 5:30 to 7:30.
 
Happy and Healthy Holidays to all!
Gerri
