Connie Dettmer gave an excellent treasurer’s report. We have had three workshops and acquired 2 new members.
- Erica McCoy is in her first art show in Sycamore on November 17th.
- Some GCWS members are in an art show at The Centennial Barn on Compton Road of 65 artists November 9th and 10th.
- Ingrid Farnham made an interesting announcement about 2 watercolor opportunities In Florida. The first is taught by Vlad Yeliseyev the end of January. The other option will be held the end of February taught by Tony Couch in Port Charlotte. Ingrid is offering help with transportation.
- Mary Fleishman gave a fascinating story about her going to an OWS workshop in Hinckley, Ohio run by Larry and Sarah Katz. Mary’s class was taught by David Lobenberg. He is from the West Coast and is a very comfortable person.
Several members showed their work from a workshop taught by Debbie Cannatella, also one of our members. Pat Lester did an excellent job organizing this event. Debbie taught by using only 3 colors on her palette. Several members showed their work which was very impressive.
Great news. Pat Lester has offered to be our new president, Mary Fleishman stepped up to be secretary and Deb Ward will continue to email the members and send out monthly postcards.
Jane Hittinger will help lead us next month in painting Christmas cards for soldiers who receive very little mail.
January and February will have no scheduled speakers due to weather concerns but open studio will be held from 10-12.
