May 1 is the Charter Member Show at the University Club, WP. Reception 2:00-4:00. Clipboards for donations of food and/or wine were circulated at the meeting. This will be our last meeting for the 2015-2016 season. We want a good showing. A very brief business meeting and artist introduction will start at 2 with a reception to follow. A donation of food and wine clipboard was sent around. Jerry Snyder will assist with the reception refreshments.

VP Teresa Chin (program chair and VP) introduced Nancy Larkin who coordinated this presentation on “Ways to Expand Your Art” publishing presentation with Q & A. This program helped to show additional ways to use our art. I know the members gained insight into putting art into book form. The roundtable with Edna Siniff, Amanda Egan, Nancy Larkin and yours truly was well received. Edna was a wealth of information. Her book, Living Seminole, is a fascinating history illustrated by Nancy. Nancy, as MC, delighted us with the art she created for (very young author) Amanda’s book, Dolly’s Garden. Amanda described how a loving memory turned into a book. Such a delight! And it was an added pleasure to have “Dolly” Ernestine Egan present along with Amanda’s dutifully proud Dad. Mary Dall and Roberta Lerman have both published using createspace and were part of the last segment on self-publishing.
