President’s Message

December and the holidays are well upon us.  The gallery looks festive and cheery, with all the beautiful art work on walls, counters and pedestals.  The tree is full of wonderful hand made ornaments, thanks to our many creative members.  Don’t forget to stop by for your own holiday shopping, and to invite friends and family members to come by as well.

On November 22nd we had Art on State Street, with our block of State Street filled with our booths and colorful artwork.  The weather cooperated, and it was a great chance for members to show a lot of their work for sale.  Thanks to all of you who assisted in making this a successful event.

We have been busy planning for 2010, and scheduling events for the year.  We will be having a Photography show-in-a-show in February, including a great reception; the Multi Media Mini Show in March; and in April, all the events surrounding the Flower Show.  And that’s just the first four months!  We look forward to making these happenings a perfect  opportunity to bring the community into the gallery, to show our work off to good advantage, and make sales. It takes a lot of work to put together these events, so let’s be generous with our time and talents, if asked to assist.

May you all have a wonderful holiday season, with family, friends and loved ones.  And may 2010 bring us all great opportunities and success.

Judith Sparhawk, President
