Spring is here – and we have lots planned.  Mark your calendars and plan to participate.

We have a workshop planned for June 3-4 with Andrew Anderson-Bell.  Andrew did a wonderful demonstration at our April Members’ Meeting – his workshop will be great.

Our 11th Annual Members’ Exhibit will be held at Sunapee Landing Trading Company in Sunapee. Be sure to get your entry to Sally by the 25th of April. The exhibit will run from May 15th through June 12th.

Make sure your membership is up to date – applications are available on the website ( ).

The Cross Border Pastel Connections Exhibit is the first joint exhibit with the Pastel Society of NH and the Pastel Painters of Maine.  This exhibit will be held at the Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery of NHAA in Portsmouth for the month of June.  Please be sure to participate.  Included in this event will be a raffle of a Girault Elizabeth Mowry “Poetic Landscape” wooden box, 102 pastel stick set as well as a Pastel demonstration by Jacob Aguiar (on June 25th)

Our next Members’ Meeting will be held on May 14th at 10:00 at FaithBridge Church, 301 S. Main St. Manchester. Our program at that meeting will feature a still life demonstration by Sandy Machell. Don’t miss it!! Just as an added bonus – many of us go to lunch after the meeting – it is really great to catch up with one another.  All are welcome!!

I am delighted to report that Keith Demache is the chair of the National Juried show which takes place in the fall.  He and his committee are working hard to make that event a success.

Share your successes with PSNH – let us know about the exhibits you are in, awards won, etc.  We love to let our membership know what is going on in your life in our newsletter and on our web site.

Your Board is working hard to plan and advertise all our events.  The one thing that would add to all the events is YOU!!  Remember the mantra for this year is SUPPORT . . . STEP UP . . . SERVE

Please keep checking the website for events (to participate in and also to help run). You can contact me via email at Keep painting!!

As always,
Nancy Johnson
