First place. “Self-Portrait,” 13×11, oil. Artist: Jeanne Ruzzin


Congrats to Jeanne Ruzzin, who won first place in our November 2021 jury with this intriguing painting. Juror:  award-winning artist Candace Law.

No meeting in December due to the holidays.

NEXT MEETING: Tuesday, Jan. 25th.

Reminder:  We are starting back up with our scholarship fundraising at this meeting, and we are no longer limiting it to books for a dollar. Please bring anything you feel our members might be interested in buying and put a tag or post-it with your price on it. We’ll be setting up at for-sale table at the meeting. At the end of the meeting, please check to see if your item has sold, and, if not, take it home.

Our January Presenter – TBD

MONTHLY JURY:  We will have our usual monthly jury. The jury will continue to be handled with online submissions, one per member. Take a good photo of some recent work and send it to Gail Churchill. Deadline:  January 21, 5pm.. Please be respectful of Gail’s time and remember to observe the file naming protocol of LastName.Title.Size.Media.jpg … example:  Richter.PondAtTwilight.12×12.oil

Those attending in person are encouraged to bring in their jury entries or any other recent work, so that we can admire our members’ efforts in real life.

NOTE:  You can attend all meetings in person or via Zoom; this allows us to continue with our nationally known online presenters, as well as being a good option if the weather is bad or your time is limited that day. A Zoom link will be sent via email before each meeting.


During the months we meet, we currently offer a session to our members every week.

1st Mondays, 10:30 am … Mentors & Protegés. Our critique group. Submit work for feedback or just attend to observe, critique and learn. We’ve been doing these in person of late, but December’s meeting will be via Zoom due to climbing Covid numbers locally. We will reevaluate in late December.

2nd and 3rd Tuesdays, 9:30 am via Zoom … Tuesday Tuneup. Our monthly open studio via Zoom. We pick a project that you can do, or you can work on your own project. Come for the feedback and camaraderie; no RSVP required. If you’re not on the email list, contact Lisa.

Not a member?

First meeting is free; please email us for information if you’d like to attend in person, or for a link if you’d like to attend virtually. Membership is $45 the first year, then $40 annually afterward.
