NEWS FLASH... This just in...

Connie Wenner, Executive Director of the Council for the Arts, needs our HELP. Due to a cancellation of the May show, she has come up with a new exhibit that can include US!

Here are the details... click on image to enlarge...

For those of you who have already created a painting of the fountain at our paint out... don't sell it yet... she needs it for the exhibit. For those of you who did not finish yours... get busy and finish... she needs it for the exhibit. For those of you who could not make the paint out but would like to take advantage of the exhibit request... get busy and go paint the fountain!
All works need to be turned into Connie at the Council by May 1st, framed and ready to hang. This is an awesome opportunity... let's show her our support and help make the show awesome!
