Recent news to take note of....

December Paint Out...
Sorry about the delay in our December Paint Out... to be honest I am swamped with work and the holiday season... no worries.... Steve Lambert is organizing the paint out in the Sneads Ferry area and I'll share the details here asap. Thanks Steve!

A note from Sherry Thurston about the Yopp House paintings.... she posted this note on my facebook page...
"OOPS show for Yopps Meeting House has moved to Rio Cafe and Arts, Sneads Ferry. They are on Facebook too. This is the perfect time to buy a beautiful historic scene of the old church from 1813. If you like helping out with recycling and saving this church would be a great place to give your gift. Buy one of the works OOPS members created. It will be on display until the 1st of January.

If the OOPS artists could send me a couple of paragraphs on their art and expertise that would be so helpful. We want to let people know more about you for the show."

January Paint Out set....
We will have a unique paint out in January... an actual life class in the warm indoors. Mark your 2010 calendar for Sunday January 13, 2010 at 1:00 PM at the Council for the Arts building where we paint a live model. The session will last from 1-4PM and should prove very challenging but rewarding for all levels. We will pass the hat and ask for donations to pay the model.
