President’s Message – February 2023

President’s Message, February 2023

Happy February!

Is everyone recovering from their tremendous output of effort for Splash? It was a beautiful show with approximately 1/3 of our members entering paintings for judging. I know of four more who have committed to enter for the first time next year….let’s keep that momentum going! I spoke with a few of the student artists and hope they will become involved with us. Their art is edgy and new and there’s much we can all learn from each other. Award recipients and photos will be on the website soon. Some event photos have already been posted on our Facebook page.

Thank you to our many artists for their entries in the show this year. I’m so impressed with the talent we have in our group.

Many thanks to all the members who have given months of their time in bringing this all together and those who assisted this weekend. There’s always feedback to be shared during and after the show. The committee reviews all of it and applies it to next year’s event. Please take time to extend your compliments and thanks to the group and let them know their efforts are appreciated!

March will bring Barbara Brook our way with a 2-day workshop, March and 12 and 13th, with a demo during the General meeting. I have enjoyed talking with her and I think you’ll enjoy this former member’s workshop. We have met our minimum attendance count so we can still take registrations through March 4th. You can register online here:

Please plan to attend the General meeting and Barbara’s demo. We have a lot of news to share. March 11, 1-3pm, Wickham Park Community Center, 2815 Leisure Way, Melbourne.
