Upcoming Events For July – 2011
PAL Needs a New Treasurer....
We are sad to announce that our Treasurer, Alison Saunders, will be leaving us for the U.K. in August. Although she will still be a member and come and visit during holidays, she will no longer be able to take on the tasks of Treasurer. Despite our pleas, sadly, no one has stepped forward to volunteer to help. PAL cannot continue without a treasurer...so please, we're asking you, once again, for your help! It is not a difficult job but a necessary one! If you are willing to volunteer in this capacity, please let us know as we only have a short time remaining to fill this position. Call or email us with any questions and we will fill you in on what the job entails.
July Member Meeting/Demo:
Our July Demo will be on Fused Glass & Glass Bead Making by Carol Kinast and will be held on July 13th from 7pm – 9pm at Limestone Brewery.
Our next Member Exhibit, "Wild Things," will be held on July 16th from 12pm to 4pm at Limestone Brewery. Each artist is responsible for their work and none can be left after 4pm at Limestone, so if you cannot stay for the show or pick up your work by 4pm, please make arrangements with someone to take your work for you. The Board and Limestone management cannot be responsible for artwork left after the show at Limestone Brewery. Also, you will need to supply your own table or large format easels to display your work, so please make sure to mark your easels with your name for identification. Tables will be provided for smaller pieces and a stage area will be used to display large pieces on large, standing easels you provide. This will be a learning experience for all, so let's give it a try and have some fun!
***We do want to encourage you to bring in any of your own, original artwork you would like to exhibit, regardless of what the "theme" of the show may be. The themes are only intended as possible inspiration, not as a restriction of any kind...so please don't hesitate to show off your work!
