President’s Message – September 2022

President’s Message, September 2022
Hello everyone!

Thank you all for your encouragement and support during the election last week. Many thanks to Diane for the service she has given for the organization and for all the preparation she did in passing the torch.

Please congratulate Jolene Bruce on her new (again) Vice President / 3 day workshops role and Donna Ware on returning for a second term and 2nd Vice President / Membership


A little about myself. I moved to Florida a little over eight years ago – it is my soul state. I’m still working full-time as a Quality Assurance Engineer for Satcom Direct, a local flight operations and satellite communications company. I am a beginning watercolorist and am learning so much from this group. I could not bear to let the organization fold and offered to fill the role of President.

The Wildlife Show is returning this year! The show will open at the old Brevard Art Museum in Eau Gallie for 2 weeks beginning November 11, 2022, and will include an opening awards reception for the artists, then will move to three other locations throughout Brevard for the month of December, the Government Building in Viera, the Eau Gallie and Cocoa Libraries.

Splash had its kickoff on Thursday, September 1. Splash is special to me as it was my introduction to the wonderful world of the Brevard Watercolor Society. Mark your calendars now for the weekend of February 18-19, 2023.

Thank you again for the warm reception. I look forward to getting to know each of you!
Teri Mahnken
BWS President
