MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT


There are lots of things happening in our local Art World this month.

First of all, NCAA has an exhibit at Midtown in Palm Beach Gardens. The Lighthouse ArtCenter has generously given us their space until March 10th. Twenty six members are showing their work.  It was a great response in such a short time.  There is music on the plaza on every Thursday night, so we will be open from about 5:30 until 8.  A number of artists will be painting on the plaza....come and join them!

We have a new venue here in Jupiter.  North County will be showing our work at the newly opened Sugar Cane Island Bistro on US1. I did a call to  artists at the Midtown opening and we hung work this past Friday.  It looks GOOD. We will change the art every 3 months.  Hopefully, the restaurant will be successful and we will get some sales.

A number of you should be very interested in the upcoming Plein Air Festival at LAC. This is a four day event from March 20-23.  It will be exciting and fun.  Entry forms can be picked up at the museum.

There are two major Art Fairs at the Convention Center this month.  Fine Art International is from Feb. 4-9. Fine Art and Jewelry Show is from Feb. 14-18.  Both of these shows offer lectures each afternoon and they are very good.

Watch for the upcoming Annual Member/Student Show at the Lighthouse.  Drop off will be on March 15th.

The LighthouseArtCenter's 50th Anniversary Ball is on March 8th at Mirasol Country Club.  Tickets are still available.

Linda Mathison is giving the demo in February.  She is going to put us to work on image transfer techniques that can be applied to canvas or paper. I think that this can offer us so many opportunities to expand our creativity in paintings and drawing.   

If you haven't sent in your dues yet.....Don't forget......$35 to: NCAA, PO Box 3672, Tequesta, FL  33469

Happy Valentine's Day,
Gerri
