Meeting Minutes

April 17, 2008

The third meeting of the Pastel Society of Tampa Bay (2007-2008) was held at the Montage Gallery in Dunedin. President, Gail Gamble, started the meeting with announcements.
Saturday, May 17, we will meet from 9am to 3pm at the entrance to John Chesnut Sr. Park (formerly Brooker Creek Park) for a day of plein-air painting. Remember to bring your lunch.
When we start meeting again in the fall, we will have a PAINT AROUND with groups of five people working on each others painting and rotating every 20 minutes. Karen Baker brought the idea from the Southwest Pastel Society.
Lastly we discussed the need for new officers for 2008-2009. Virginia LaTourrette suggested that we rotate through the positions to keep a flow of information going. With this idea in mind we discussed the board and asked for volunteers at the end of the meeting.

Then Mary Louise Pollock introduced the owner of Montage Gallery, Dana Rizzuto. He had prepared a handout for each person explaining proper framing. His talk was helpful and informative.

During refreshments we were able to create a slate of officers and committee chairs for next year. If any one would like to add their name to the list please email Gail Gamble at by May 5, 2008.
