Members’ Poll About January 2022 General Meetings
Our board has gotten together and decided that we would like to try getting together in person again, starting with our general meeting in January of 2022. But this is a decision that should also involve you, the members. We would be all together in our hotel meeting room for a couple of hours, and some people might not be ready for that yet. So please let us know how you feel – whether you want to start attending meetings in person or not. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Art Changeout at Skero’s
The next changeout of art at Skero’s will be on Wednesday, October 27 at 1:30 p.m. If you have art there, please drop by to pick it up. And any paid member is eligible to bring fresh artwork to take the place of what was there. Just make sure your work is ready to hang (picture wire installed). And speaking of paid members. . .
Membership Fees Due
We have not yet received membership dues from many of you. Please renew your membership as soon as possible! We need dues to be paid by the end of October. Paid memberships will also mean that you are eligible to enter our Fall 2021 Virtual Art Show and Competition.
Fall 2021 Virtual Art Show and Competition
Our judge for the Fall Art Show will be Shirley Leago. She will be giving a critique of the winning art pieces during our November General Meeting. Entries are due by the end of Wednesday, November 3, 2021. The procedure for entry should be available under “Shows and Competitions” on our website. More information on the show will be arriving very soon. Stay tuned!

Demo Artist for October – Sarah Sedwick – Oil Painting
Sarah Sedwick is an oil painter who makes her home in Eugene, Oregon. Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1979, she began oil painting at age ten. In 2001 she earned a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, with a focus on illustration and painting, and a minor degree in art history. Her work focuses mainly on still life and portraiture, painting from direct observation. Sarah has been writing a studio blog since 2008, posting new paintings as they’re made and chronicling her art journey. She is also active on Instagram and Facebook.
Teaching is an integral part of her creative work. She teaches still life and portrait painting workshops around the country and internationally, as well as an online art mentorship program.
