LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
Our March meeting was chock full of information for all of the LOAG artists.
Chris Flanagan gave an excellent and enlightening program on "Transporting Your Art",
something we all need whether we are taking pieces to a local show or shipping cross country.
Shirley Tomac won the last remaining painting of our raffle, a lovely floral by Linda Ruwe.
Nada Meeks continues to work on our blog. The website will be allowed to expire, to be replaced
by the blog, a more modern approach to presenting information. We continue to try to look
in a timely manner, rather than scrambling to get something going at the last
to change out art for Art in Public Places. That rotation is in progress. Any
artists who would like to join the rotation should contact Anda Chance.
Heritage Park has molding and rods present for hanging our artwork when the time comes to
present there. In fact, we are ordering more, so as to be ready for more art from more talented
meeting of the Guild will be held at the high school in May, and the membership will select scholarship recipients.
Art Splash will, as usual be held in June, for 3 days. There is always a full house. Volunteers are
needed, and the whole 3 days are really FUN.
deadline for the Valdosta extravaganza is March 20. You don't want to miss a chance to
go to that party. If you need information on that event, call or email a Board member.
There will be plein air painting by the Suwannee Valley Plein Air Painters at the Wild Azalea
Festival in White Springs March 16 and 17. The majority of the Plein Air Painters are Guild
members. Come out and draw and/or paint with them, or just visit with them while they paint. All
support is appreciated. They will also hang paintings in the Event cottage across from the visitor
That's all for this month. I hope to see you at the April meeting at the library at 6:30 on April 2.
