Though they were given only two days' notice of this all-Pine Shores summer art show, our members rose to the occasion on July 6!! By the end of the day, 72 paintings were on display at Tuckerton Seaport, with another dozen to be hung the following day. 

Big helpers were Lee Fricke and Kathy Crocker receiving/recording artworks, and hangers Willy Mueller,  Dee Turba and President Paul Hartelius (who snapped these pictures). 

Members can stop by the Seaport, check in at the Hunting Shanty (the makeshift gift shop and visitor center) and let them know you want to see the show and you'll be allowed to do so at no charge. The exhibit runs through Labor Day.

Left to right: Dennis Millar, Lee Fricke, Dee Turba and Willy Mueller all enjoyed the marathon hanging.

Happy Retirement, Francine !
PSAA has been fortunate over the last 11 years to have one very dedicated Ocean County Library Stafford Branch Librarian assist us with coordination of our library art shows and especially our quarterly art history lectures and receptions! Francine Everson has worked closely with Ilomay Pedicini in planning and executing our events these last 11 years, making Ila's job much easier and always a very positive and pleasant experience! 

Francine, a Beach Haven resident, is looking forward to a relaxing retirement and maybe even taking an art course or two, although she says she can't draw a thing! (We always rise to these challenges! 😊) We can't thank her enough for all her help and friendship through the years, and wish her a long, healthy happy retirement! 

On behalf of Pine Shores, Ila and I presented Francine with a bouquet and card on July 29th, her last day of work.
