MESSAGES FROM OUR PRESIDENT

      We have been doing very well financially and want to keep up the good work!

I just love this time of year in South Florida.  The weather is fabulous and there are so many things to do. The Art Shows have arrived at the Convention Center and will continue throughout the month.  Their lecture series at these shows bring in experts from around the country and are offered free of charge every day.
 
In addition, there are the continuing activities at the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach throughout the season. They are generally moderate in price and quite wonderful.
 
Some of us have been going to the Norton's "Art After Dark" on Thursday nights and they are usually a fun evening. Last week was Italian night, with Frank Cerabino playing the accordian, a lecture on Renaissance Art and arias by the Palm Beach Opera.
 
Our own Lighthouse Art Center is constantly bringing us a wide range of cultural activities....check out their calendar!
 
Bruce Bain will be our presenter this month at the NCAA meeting.  Bruce has a presentation about taking better pictures. This should be of interest, not only to photographers, but particularly to painters who are always battling with composition and light.
 
It's been a good winter so far for Plein-air painting.....Join us!
This month we will revisit the vegetable and flower garden at Abacoa, where Linda Hastings spends much of her time.   It is right next to the Allegro assisted living complex.  (that's the best direction I can give you...google it)
We also are planning on a day of river views from Cynthia McCallister's house on Riverside Drive.
 
There will be a special Plein-air day at the base of the Jupiter Lighthouse on Friday, February 22....Let's really do ourselves proud and represent NCAA that day.  This will be followed up by an exhibition day at the Historical Site on March 23rd.
 
Enjoy it all!
Gerri
