Pine Shores' Linda Ramsay's bayfront studio in High Bar Harbor was one of the must-see stops on the June 25 tour. And her fellow artists were invited to visit and even do their plein air work on the premises. Above: Mee Kyung Sohn, Louisa Lavelle and Nick Havernick paused for a group portrait.

As a result of their first place awards, Joyce  and Richard will go on to the State Competition, joining the other first-place winners from each county.

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.
By popular demand, an Acrylic III class will be given by Jason Ward. This class will suit the more experienced acrylic artist and also those who have completed Acrylic I and/or II. Demonstrations and one-on-one attention will be given. Aug. 22 and 23, Acrylic III, Jason Ward, 9:30 - 3:30 $50 members/$75 non-members. 

An additional beginning oil class by Jason Ward has also been added to the schedule. His prior Oil I class filled so quickly that we were asked to schedule another one. Aug. 29 and 30, Oil I, Jason Ward, 9:30 - 3:30 $50 members/$75 non-members.

Learn how to really put the finishing touch to your beautiful artwork with Pat Morgan's half day workshop on framing and matting.  Sept. 8, Framing Your Paintings with Style, Pat Morgan, 9:30-12:30, $20 members/$30 non-members
