Message From the President

Hope you all are having a wonderful summer, enjoying all the color around us. Our May Members’ Meeting was great – we had three artists, Sandra Kavanaugh, Sally Shea and Lisa Regopoulos, take turns painting one art piece. It was fun to watch – they each took turns of seven minutes and completed a wonderful piece. The finished art work was raffled off – and I must say I am enjoying it!!

Christine Bodnar led a fantastic two-day workshop at Wild Salamander Creative Arts in Hollis, NH. Tom Bradley was the lucky buyer of Christine’s demo. We have two more workshops scheduled for this year. Our three-day workshop, “Finding the Wow”, will be led by Jeanne Rosier Smith at Creative Venture Galleries, Milford, NH on October 19th-21st. This is filling up – please be sure to make your reservation soon. On November 10th Janet Schwartz will lead a one-day workshop at Grace Episcopal Church, Lowell St., Manchester.

Can you believe that we will be holding our tenth national juried show, It’s Pastel! this year? It will be held at the Discover Center in Portsmouth. Keith Demanche has been working hard getting sponsors and planning special surprises. The opening will be October 20th.

Your board has been looking at grants we can apply for. Joelle Feldman has been doing a dynamite job with outreach. She has planned (and led) workshops at the Portsmouth Library. She has organized three workshops, July 19th, July 26th, and August 2nd for the International Institute of New England children to be led by various member artists. We are also interested in expanding our outreach programs – we would love to have your input. Please consider joining the board – come and join us – our next Board meeting is August 4th. Hope to see you all soon!! As always, Nancy Johnson
