PRESIDENT'S PALLETTE

Did everyone see the eclipse or a sliver of it? How exciting!! It is an event like this that can get our minds, our hearts, our entire being engaged in a new way in the awe of the world around us, or, we can miss the event completely. With hurricane Harvey upon us what will that look like, how will that feel. Is it exciting, scary, sad, terrifying? Will this event inspire creativity in us, or not? Until today, I really questioned if summer will ever end, but when I opened to door I was pleasantly greeted with a change, perhaps the looming rain, the cloudy shapes in the sky, we will have a new season. Those changes allow us to see new things, get new perspective and yes inspire us to create new work.

Mark your calendars:

Member Meeting September 11 @ 12 noon

Fall Members Show Opening Reception is September 29, 5 pm - 6:30 pm.

See you all soon!
