Twenty-six years ago I founded this group, The Art
I am thrilled that it has continued to thrive. We now
have 79 members and as you see from the photo here,
we have great attendance at our meetings. This
beautiful room is the art gallery at the
BlackRock Center for the Arts
At this recent meeting we had what we call
"Show and Tell". We do it regularly and it is a
wonderful way to keep each other up to date on
what we are doing. It provides us with a sort of
accountability and motivation to continue to
produce new work. It is always a great pleasure
to see the new pieces members are working on.
This group remains a very large part of my life. I
started it because I was new in the community all those
years ago and wanted to have other artists in the area
to share with. I also had the intention to help artists as
I care so deeply about us all and I want us to do well
and stick to our dreams.
Please look at the website for our group which is the
first one in this post. Then you can visit the site of
our wonderful art center that opened here 6 years
ago. Our group and the center are partners in many
wonderful and productive ways. How great is that!
