UPCOMING EXHIBITION IN HELEN SCHULER NATURE CENTRE
Members, start painting!! Our exhibition in Helen Schuler Nature Centre is scheduled to run from August 1 to September 26, (barring any further Health Emergency shutdowns). The theme of the exhibition is “The Four Seasons in the River Valley“. Painters may choose to paint/draw any aspect of the river valley during one of the seasons.
Due to limited space, we are limiting entries to one painting per member, and ask that your canvases/framed works be a minimum of 9″ x 12″ and a maximum of 24″ x 36″. Work must be wired to standards set out in club guidelines. Watch this site for more details on entry forms, drop- off dates, etc.
In September, the Club is planning a Reunion BBQ / Membership Mingle at one of the picnic shelters. More details will available in the next couple of months. We look forward to seeing all our members again!
Also planned are a series of outdoor painting opportunities in the spring and summer. Those too will be announced as the weather warms up. Locations will be a blend of city/ county sites and foothills/mountain sites.
One of the city sites we go to to paint and sketch is The Nikka Yuko Garden. It’s a wonderful place to unwind, and focus on our drawing practice. Throughout the spring and summer a small group of us will meet there. . Watch this site for notice of when we plan to return to the Garden. It opens later this spring. We recommend plein air painters purchase season passes if they plan to paint there..it is much more economical. https://www.nikkayuko.com/
