In consideration of many factors, we will not be meeting on Thursday, March 19, for our Members’ Meeting and Artist Demonstration
. As responsible citizens and as guardians of our own health and that of others, we will conform to all governmental requests to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
Our invited guest artist, Chris Leeper
, had been queried earlier by our program director, Michael Killelea, about the possibility and he was agreeable dependent upon our decision. We hope to bring him at some future time.We will be watching closely to be able to give earlier notice regarding the April meeting and the May workshop and meeting. Again, the appropriate chairpeople have already contacted those artists about the possibility of cancelation.Our Spring 2020 Members Exhibition of Transparent Watercolor has not been canceled. We are working with Don Siuta and the Artists Group Gallery daily to determine if any modifications to the scheduled reception will have to be made. THE SHOW MUST GO ON! Your framed artwork is to be delivered on Saturday, April 18th.
I got home on Friday and am better but still using a cane and gimping around. I had hoped to see you all this week after being away for three months. I so appreciated the notes, messages, emails and cards that came. You kept my spirits up. Though we won’t be together, know that you are in my heart and thoughts. Be careful and take care of yourselves. Be well.
Honored to be your President,
