October 2015 Recap

In case you missed the October 2015 Meeting…

CFWS hosted its second general meeting of the year on October 4, 2015 at the First Presbyterian Church of Maitland. Attendance was good considering that our event coincided with the Florida Watercolor Society and its conference weekend. We were pleased to add several new members on Sunday!

The rules for the January Art House show were explained. This show is a first come-first served show and without a judge to select entries an email response seemed the best way to verify the participant and time of request. On Oct. 21 at “High Noon” interested participants will emailmarydall@bellsouth.net with their intent to show. Only CFWS members in good standing will be permitted to participate. All rules and regulations can be found in the member October newsletter or on the participating artist page on the website.

Vice President, Terri Chin, explained how Plein Air will work “by host” until a coordinator steps forward and several people signed up. Roberta Lerman will host the first Plein Air in October. (Please contact Roberta for additional information and map.) Roberta reminded everyone that she will provide light snacks but that they should bring their own lunches. If anyone is interested in presenting a demo at the event they should contact Roberta. Additionally, Terri is taking the Plein Air sign-up to our website. Now you can sign up to host electronically- PleinAir Hosting! You can also see what dates are available, get details on planned events and save the dates. Please visit our website often.

The President, Mary Dall, reminded us that she’d be presenting ideas to expand and enhance the club and welcomes suggestions that she can share with the group. Email suggestions.

The best part of the meeting, of course, was the chance to see Janet Rogers in action! Janet did several demos for the group and was enthusiastically welcomed and appreciated. It was a wonderful and rewarding Sunday afternoon. The members taking the workshop on Oct. 5,6,7 were especially thrilled and ready to get started.

Look forward to seeing you all at our next general meeting on Nov. 1!
