Officers left to right are Bernadette Darder - Secretary; Peggy Mahan - Treasurer; Kathy Crocker - VP and Paul Hartelius - President. Ex-Prez Paul Daukas conducted the ceremony. The Jan. 4 meeting was packed and everyone was in great spirits in spite of the frigid weather outside! All were wowed over the brightly colored large format oil paintings of Jill DeFelice's solo show adorning the gallery walls for the month of January. The Annual Meeting included the election of Lou Baptiste  (not pictured) as the new Trustee at Large on the 2016 Board.
This program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Ocean County Cultural & Heritage Commission from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
