June meeting

We had an amazing meeting in June with 28 attendees at our final meeting before the summer break. President Carron Wedlund kept us up to date with things happening in the coming season, such as two new non-juried shows, plus of course our annual juried show next year, and we then had our annual election of officers for the coming season. These will be:
President:          Carron Wedlund
Vice President:  Paula Pascucci
Treasurer:          Jackie Piontek
Secretary:          Barbara Adams

Although I've given up the Secretary position after six years (!) I'll still be continuing on as webmaster and blogger and trying to keep you all up to date with our doings.

A lot folks brought in things for the Swap Meet and many of us went home feeling we'd picked up some terrific bargains.

 Then we all settled in with interest for the presentation portion of the meeting.

Framing without mats is becoming very popular in the pastel world. If you look back to our paintings from our spring juried show you will see many without mats. Richard Lundgren gave a comprehensive presentation on framing without mats.

Using spacers and tape he created a perfect airtight "sandwich" of the painting, the spacers and the glass, taped around the edges, that could just be dropped right into the frame.

And that concluded our June meeting, the last meeting until we begin again in the fall. Everyone mark your calendars! In September we will meet on the SECOND Saturday instead of the usual first, as the first Saturday falls on Labor Day weekend. We hope everyone has a joyous and artistically fruitful summer, and we look forward to meeting again in September. Stay tuned for details.
