5.  D'Art for Art donations need to be dropped off by October 24th.  Applications are available on line at:  www.lighthousearts.org .  This is a truly memorable event and I strongly urge members to donate really fine work.  This is a venue that puts your work into collections and offers very good exposure.   I am also recommending that you buy a ticket to D'Art......What fun!     D'Art is on Saturday, November 9th. 
 
6.  The Lighthouse Art Center is offering two wonderful trips this Fall and we should plan on enjoying both.   On Wednesday, October 16, there is a trip to the Elliot Museum in Stuart.  Thursday, December 5th there will be a bus to Art Basel in Miami.  Katie Deits and I will be offering personal tours.   More information below:
On Wednesday, October 16, 2013 join your escort Evelyne Bates and your friends from Lighthouse ArtCenter for a one-day trip to the new Elliott Museum in Stuart.
The bus will depart from the ArtCenter at 10:30 a.m. You’ll enjoy lunch (not included in price) at the museum’s Outrigger Café and a private docent tour of “Celebrating Viva Florida 500.”
After the guided tour, you will have time to explore on your own before heading back, arriving in Tequesta at 4 p.m.
Tickets are $38 (which includes the tour, bus trip, plus a tip for the bus driver).
 
Want to experience Art Basel/Miami without the stress of travel, plus have a personal tour with Lighthouse ArtCenter Executive Director Katie Deits and artist Gerri Aurre.
A luxurious bus will leave at 10 a.m. on Thursday, December 5, 2013. You’ll enjoy lunch on the famous Lincoln Road and then see the latest in Contemporary Art. After an interesting art-filled day, relax and have a glass of wine on the bus ride back to Tequesta (arriving back at 7 p.m.).
Tickets are $55 (includes Art Basel ticket, bus ride and tour. Lunch and tip for driver are additional).
For each ArtTrip, space is limited to 32 guests, and reservations are required. To purchase your tickets, call (561) 746-3101 or visit LighthouseArts.org.
 
Reminder:  NO MEETING IN AUGUST.
 Monday, September 9                   NCAA Meeting at 7PM at the Lighthouse.
 
Monday, September 16                  Drop off art at Corner Cafe, 2:30
 
Monday, October 14                       NCAA and The Artists of Palm Beach County will be holding their monthly meeting together at the Lighthouse ArtCenter.
 
I think that we have so many fine opportunities to show our work and to enjoy the art experience in South Florida. Every year seems to expand our options and enhance our understanding of the art world around us.
Keep creating!
Gerri
