The second meeting of the Pastel Society of Tampa Bay was held at the studio of Ernie Simmons in Dunedin. President Gail Gamble had a short business meeting. Future proposed events are a paint out at Brooker Creek Park and a general meeting at the DFAC to include instructions on framing. Ernie Simmons added that he is on the committee for shows at the park and will be glad to help us display our paintings there.
Next a drawing for 4 pastel boards was held. The company has asked for feed back about the boards from the winners.
Gail then introduced Ernie, and we had an open question and answer session about the experiences Ernie has had establishing himself as a successful artist. He was very open and honest about his discoveries along the way. He offered us help, advice, and delicious food and drinks. As a small gift of appreciation Gail gave him a large parrot kite to mark his studio along the trail.
We still need all members to help us find a location for our show in the fall. Please send any and all ideas to us ASAP.
WE NEED ALL MEMBERS TO PICK UP THEIR ART WORK AT THE DUNEDIN COMMUNITY CENTER ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29TH FROM 9-12.
