MANCHESTER ART ASSOCIATION

January 31, 2002

 

It’s the middle of winter and nobody noticed!  We have been too busy!

¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬

Nominations for Hall of Fame 2002: The Manchester Art Council is accepting nominations until February 20.  Guidelines include longevity of participation in the field (past or ongoing), and outstanding contributions of artistic expression that have inspired, educated others or benefited our community.  Viola Sobel and Hans Weiss have been suggested.  Grace Tedford was our 2001 visual art representative.  Any board member will accept your nomination.

¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬

Frank Pane and Sharon Merton demonstrated their art at the “Gathering of the Artists” at Cheney Hall on January 16, representing the Manchester Art Association.  Thanks to both!

¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬

Did you know?  MAA artists are exhibiting at J.C. Penney’s Transitional Hall.  This show will change in May so get ready.  Reception is April 12.  (See the chart for time.)

¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬

Have you noticed?  The publicity each week in the Manchester Extra of the Hartford Courant tells about MAA artists’ paintings at Cheney Hall.  Several artists have sold paintings.

¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬

Two more shows are coming up soon!  The Silk Room at Cheney Hall and Arts of Tolland.  Enclosed is an application for Arts of Tolland in March to be returned to me by February 27.

¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬

Notice:  Two workshops--April 13, watercolor at MCC with Lucy Heineman and May 11, plein air painting with Leslie Breran.

¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬ ¬

We will have our annual dinner on May 15th and our show at MCC’s Newspace Gallery in June.
