MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT


The cooler weather means that we will be starting our Plein-Aire painting again. It would be wonderful if more of you started joining our group.  We enjoy getting together and sharing this experience. The Lighthouse Art Center is once again hosting a Plein-Aire Festival in March and we want to be ready!

Once again, NCAA has been given the opportunity by LAC, to show our art at the Midtown Center. Hopefully, the area will continue to grow and an exhibit there will be worthwhile exposure for us. Bring your art to the space at Midtown on PGA Boulevard, across from Christopher's Kitchen, on Thursday, November 13, between 10 and 12.

Our November 10th meeting will be an interesting and important one for all members. Katie Deits let me know that the Lighthouse has hired a Juried Art Service to select artwork for their shows.  This means that entries need to be properly photographed for submission. Our meeting will explain about this service and will discuss photographing your work. Please try to be there so that you can be sure to successfully enter future shows.

Your Board decided to give our student scholarships early so that we could qualify for the matching grant that was due by October 31st.  Four children will benefit because our $500 gift became $1,000.

Election of officers will take place at the December meeting.  Please consider joining in. We'll talk about this at the November meeting.

If you haven't contributed to D'Art....you still have a day or two to consider it. The Artists Party is on November 1st....and it is FABULOUS! There are still a few D'Art tickets and they are greatly reduced for generous artists.

The Lighthouse Art Center is once again hosting a bus trip to Art Basel on December 4th. Katie Deits and I will be available to take groups around the show and point out booths  and work that we think are significant.  Act fast.....These tickets go quickly!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Gerri

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT


All of a sudden.....with the approaching change of seasons, the local art scene is again heating up! Thank goodness...I just love it when the air cools down and we all get back to work.

First of all, the Lighthouse Art Center is hosting a visit to the Boca Museum on October 17th.
This trip is scheduled for the last day of the All Florida Artists Show. I was at the Opening Night Event and I can tell you that it is a wonderful show....and not to be missed.

The cost is $35 and is from 10-4. Call for a seat on the bus.....Support the Lighthouse Art Center. It will be a great day. Purchase tickets on http://www.lighthousearts.org/tours.html or call (561) 746-3101.

 Our annual show at the Jupiter Community Center opens this Friday night, October 10th from 6-8. This event is sponsored by the Jupiter Art Committee and they really work very hard on our behalf. The show is housed in a space that offers us a lot of local exposure throughout the month. Stop by for very fine refreshments.

It is D'Art donation time.  Please bring in your artwork by Monday, October 27th.
We hope that you will consider donating a piece of art to D’Art for Art this year. Your contributions make this successful event possible!

This year artists are invited to attend the event at a greatly reduced price.....So, do consider attending! Julie Beaumont and I are hard at work (not really....HARD....we LOVE doing it) creating the centerpieces for the tables that will celebrate the 1964 founding of the Lighthouse.
I think that D'Art is the most fun ever and I urge you all to donate generously.
The Artists Appreciation Party, on November 1st, is a fabulous event.

Our presenting artist at the October NCAA meeting, on Monday, October 13th, is Katie Colazzio. I absolutely love her work and have 2 of her pieces prominently displayed in my home.
Katie is a free spirit who is immensely entertaining and insightful about her work. She will talk about how she approaches abstraction and I think that you will find her liberating.

Lastly, come join us at The Village Art Studios on Thursday, October 30th, for our Halloween Party...and...Pot luck.
Costumes are ESSENTIAL attire.
Bring a dish or a bottle of wine........5:30-8.

Be creative,
Gerri
