Hey guys --
Earl and I think that it is wonderful that Bernie and Mitchell will be highlighted in the upcoming ArtWorks Plein Air Show. Earl & i visted the ArtWorks gallery about a week ago. We brought several of our paintings there, including some of our paintings we did with the OOPS club in Jacksonville. We were excited about having our paintings there, but learned quickly that the Plein Aire art show was only of scenes in New Bern. We did not have any paintings of New Bern, we did not know this. Needless to say - we both left disappointed. Wish we had known about the the Plein Air Art Show featuring scenes from New Bern.
But i'm sure there will be other opportunites for us to display our art.

Donna... Thanks for the kind words and sorry to hear about your wasted trip. I sent word out on October 23rd informing all the OOPS artists about the show... Here's the email I sent... there must have been a glitch in the email you recieved...

"Dear OOPs artists... If you get a chance to go to New Bern and plein air paint... New Bern ArtWorks Gallery is having a plein air exhibit in their gallery of New Bern scenes for November and December. Mitchell and I have several pieces in the gallery from our paint out last month. Martha... the owner is responding below to John Hanley who will also have some work in the show. The works will be juried in by the owner. I do not know any more details other than what is listed below... you can contact the gallery at

" oops ", i went back and checked my past e-mails, and the info. about Art Works was there on Oct. 23. I'm sure i overlooked this somehow. Sorry. I guess i need to pay more attention to e-mail announcements from the OOPS club - and write them down on my calender. Sorry i did not catch this.

For the November paint out, i will not be there, the date is on the weekend i have to work.

Earl, and i will be there in heart. We miss painting with the group.
Happy Painting,

Donna Tyree
