- Signature letter will include directions to call my 1-800# (1-800-832-8622,ext.230) to let me know if the artist plans to participate, and how many paintings they will
be submitting (1 or 2).
-There will also be a notice to have paintings collected at Gallery 53 at our next meeting (Nov.9th, 10:00-12:00), if anyone east of Hartford would like help getting their
paintings to New Canaan.
PLEIN AIR DISCUSSION
-We briefly discussed ways to increase participation in the Plein Air sessions. Everyone felt it was an important benefit to offer, but we need to publicize more - provide more advanced notice, and also consider having some sessions on a weekday.
Janet Cook provided an update with a "live" look at the site in progress, and it was met with strong approval by all who saw it. Some further suggestions for enhancements were to:
-Add Award Winners page from the major Renaissance Award winners
-Put P.R. release about the website in to the Pastel Journal, once the site is up and running
-Add statement that all members can provide comments directly back to Janet
|See you on the 9th of November!|
