Hello!

Here’s hoping that spring is around the corner along with those vaccines! We sure do miss seeing everyone at our usual meetings and paint ins, but hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy—and also creative!

Spring Virtual Show
We plan to have another virtual show running from April 4-24. All the information regarding this show and the application process is included in the attachment to this newsletter. Please read it over carefully and follow the instructions regarding submission of photos of your art.

March Zoom Talk
On March 2nd, at 7 PM, Brian Graham will be giving a talk about photographing your art. We encourage all members to join in to this talk, but in particular recommend it highly to anyone who is thinking of applying for the virtual show. Having the best photographs of your work goes a long way in promoting an accurate rendition of each piece.
Also, new for this month, you no longer need to register for this Zoom meet. The link to it will be posted in the Members Only section on our website under Member News. Please look for the link there in order to join in on Tuesday evening.

Workshops
The workshop committee is currently working on finalizing the details for the Brian Buckrell workshop in June that was postponed from last June. Before it is opened up to the general membership, those members who had registered for this workshop in 2020 will be given first refusal. Please wait until you receive an email requesting your registration confirmation for 2021.

Artists Gallery
This is a section on our website that showcases art by our members. Each month there is also a featured artist whose work appears on the home page of the website. It is a great way to promote your art and we encourage everyone to participate. Please follow the instructions regarding uploading of your images for the gallery.

Venues
The libraries, while open, are currently not displaying art. Should that change anytime soon I will send out an email.
Millers Oven also remains closed.

Take care,
Giedre Abromaitis
