We’re gearing up for our annual exhibit. Our last meeting before the exhibit was busy with business, but we also found time for fun. Here’s a glimpse of this crazy group hamming it up for the camera. Thank you Barbara London for some great shots!

Here’s Muriel with her interpretation of Vivaldi’s spring. This is an acrylic painting, although we often see encaustic and prints from her as well.

Lorrie’s one of our newer members, but doesn’t she just fit in with the wild canvas and the bright smile?

Besides being an incredible artist, Jennifer is our graphic designer this year. She’s also doing her very best to keep us organized, not an easy task. Oh, and did I mention that she pulled together our calendar. More on that later.

Speaking of hamming it up for the camera… This is Nancy Evans, hiding behind her work.
These lovely subtle pieces you will want to see in person.

And here is our intrepid photographer and musician – Barbara London.
Come to the reception and listen to her play the flute and the keyboard. Then take a look at her art and see if you can see the connection between the two. We’re very lucky to count her in our group.

Here’s Katrina with her piece for the Vivaldi show.
Love that she included gold in the piece. I didn’t use it in mine, but I think the Vivaldi calls for gold or copper, something bright and shiny.

And Josh and I. These are both departures from our normal way of working. His piece has a lot of elements and particularly colors from my normal work, so we had to show these together. My piece “Four Seasons” is a departure for me. I’m experimenting with acrylic on canvas – no collage in sight!!

This is more like what Josh usually does and is much closer to his normal color palette.
I really like this piece – love the colors and patterns.

Here’s Elaine with one of her latest. Her pieces are acrylic and charcoal, again very subtle.
You’ll want to get close to this to see the subtle interplay of translucency and color.

Bonnie Jean Malcolm is one of my heroes – the ultimate artist. She’s always working and exploring new ideas. She doesn’t second guess herself or do anything half-heartedly.
And shhhh! Don’t tell anyone, but she’s turning 92 on the 26th, when our show opens.

Well, that’s not everyone. Maybe we can get a few more shots on Sunday when we hang the show.

Hope to see you at the reception on the 30th.
