Time to POP Out Into the Community!
 New member Laura Moyer introduces her idea to have Pines Shores artists volunteer monthly at senior citizens centers and nursing homes.
Pine Shores Art Association's Outreach Program is coming in January 2016! We will be taking Art Projects to patients at three nearby Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers:

   Genesis Healthcare - Southern Ocean Center off Rte. 72, Manahawkin – Tue 2:00-3:30.

   Manahawkin Nursing & Rehabilitation Center off Rte. 72, Manahawkin – Wed 1:00-2:00.

   Seacrest Terraces Assisted Living Facility off Mathistown Rd, Tuckerton/Little Egg Harbor – Tue or Wed 2-3:30pm, depending on when volunteers are available.

We'll provide our PSAA Outreach Program once a month at each facility. Volunteer Training, project materials and practice sessions will be provided by PSAA prior to your visit, so you'll be prepared and ready to have some FUN with the patients as you help them express themselves through art!

Save the date: Wednesday, Jan. 13, 3 pm: Training session, at PSAA, for the volunteers' planning to take art activities to local nursing homes.  More information about the training and project practice will follow. If you cannot attend the meeting but  your heart is calling you to do this, please call Linda Saladino at 609-660-8062 or Charleen Leslie at 609-709-7441.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...at the Tuckerton Seaport, as PSAA members Kathy  Crocker and Lee Fricke show their decorating skills. For more about how it was done, scroll down.        photograph by Paul Hartelius
Paul Hartelius reports:
"The Seaport at first didn't want a Pine Shores art show during November/December, but then saw how bare the walls were when the Fall Show was taken down, and so they asked us to quickly put up a holiday/winter show. Not wanting to disappoint, we hung 20 paintings with the help of Lee Fricke, Kathy Crocker, Shelly Ristowe (and me!)
After hanging the show we then tackled the tree, which is one of 17 trees this year making up the 'festival of trees' where each tree is decorated by a different non-profit and the Seaport visitors can 'vote' for their favorite tree by making a donation in the container designated for that specific tree. (This year we had lots of new handmade ornaments from our members, and combining them with last years ornaments, we will also have another great tree at our PSAA gallery in early December!) The non-profit with the most donated dollars at the end of the festival (first week in January) is crowned the winner of the festival (for bragging rights!). Last year Pine Shores took in $77. (We didn't come close to winning, however!)

 Receiving was from 10 to noon on Wednesday November 25 and was a relaxed, casual event with artists picking up their Fall Art Harvest paintings and others dropping off their 'Deck the Walls' artwork. Although most members stopping by to drop off or pick up were out running last minute errands for their Thanksgiving celebrations the next day, everyone stopped by long enough to chat and catch up with friends and admire the new show artwork. Once the last paintings were received, the hanging committee went to work like a well-oiled machine and finished in what seemed like record time, letting the crew get home at an earlier hour to join their families. -- Paul Hartelius
