MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT


As November begins, the buzz of a new season is already in the air.

The D’Art for Art exhibit is hung at the Lighthouse Art Center and it is better than ever. Artists have given generously and the galleries look great.  Thank you all. This major fundraising event helps the Lighthouse and artists' reputations as well. It will be juried and I hope some of our members will be winners. I cannot think of an event that is more rewarding and fun than D’Art. It has been great being a co-chair with Julie Beaumont.

The Manoogian Collection will be arriving this month and promises to be a major event in South Florida. It is quite exciting for the Lighthouse and many of you are preparing to be docents throughout the winter. The opening will be on third Thursday, November 19th. I am sure that you will visit this exhibit of important American Art, over and over again.

Thank you to those who attended my talk on Contemporary Art… I hope that the audience enjoyed it and feel open to experiencing and exploring things that are new and different in the Art world.  This should help to introduce Art Basel in Miami in December.  Katie Deits and I will be leading groups at the Convention Center on December 4th. Contact LAC if you are interested in their bus trip to Miami.

We just had a lovely show at Eissey Theatre and are invited back for the summer of 2016. In fact, it was so well liked, we will be exhibiting there in January 2018 as well.

The North County Artists meeting in November will be taking place at the Village Art Studios…right next door to the Lighthouse.  Jim Rigg will be our presenter.  He is a new instructor of collage and watercolor at the Lighthouse school. It should be interesting. 

We will be having a Board Meeting at the Village Art Studios on Wednesday, November 18th at 12 noon…I’ll bring lunch.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Gerri
