Juried Show!

We had a great presentation from Arlene Hanly on April 5. Arlene has had many years of experience as a professional framer.

 We had a great turnout too, with our big annual juried show coming up we had lots of folks interested in framing tips.

Arlene also had good examples of good and not so good framing. I hope everyone got some great tips and had success in framing.

Our big show opening is THIS FRIDAY! Our shows just get better and better every year, and I can't wait to be able to display here the winning pictures, and all the others as well. When I saw the amazing work at the receiving date for our show I knew our judge, Christine Ivers, would have her work cut out for her. I'd sure hate to be the one making the choices.

Okay everyone, keep in mind these weekend dates!

General meeting - framing


What:   FCPS General Meeting
When:  Saturday, April 7, 2018, 10 AM to noon
Where: Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach 

I hope you've all seen your reminder emails. Saturday it's time once again to get together for our general meeting, and we hope people will happily turn out with this nicer weather we are having.

Our juried show is coming up so it's time to get our accepted pieces framed and ready to go. If you have questions bring them on Saturday. Artist Arlene Hanly will be there to give us tips and advice about framing.

If you have any good tips of your own please bring them along to share with the group.

I have one tip I'll pass along freely right here. If you are in need of D-rings to attach your hanging wire you don't need to travel to a specialty art store. They can be purchased locally at your nearest Lowe's.

See you Saturday!
