We welcomed first-time visitor, Marsha, to our most recent critique.  Our group continues to grow, and, as you can see, our body of work is becoming even more diverse and interesting!  This is such a fantastic group, willing to share their art and their ideas.  If you haven't been to one of our critiques, please consider stopping in.  We meet the second Monday each month, and you are welcome to come and share your artwork, or simply observe.  We hope to see you!

A Note from Bonnie:

Welcome, Kathy and Marsha!  It is always great to add new
members to our group. 

My next project is to obtain catalogs from art
supply companies to have a collection
for our group.  Please let me know if
you would like a catalog available
from a particular company.

Also, don't forget about our art exhibit at
the library and the information we need to
give to Lee.  (due May 15)

See you soon!
