What's New & Noteworthy
Note from Pine Shores’ President Linda Saladino

September is here and soon our surroundings will be ablaze with the beautiful
colors of Autumn ! It’s my favorite time of the year. Let it inspire you to start
working on a painting for our Fall Harvest Show. The subject matter can be
anything you like, there is no theme involved.
    A reminder to all our members that face masks are optional for those who have been vaccinated. PSAA will continue to adhere to the policy of members sanitizing their own work space and equipment after use. For the protection of our members, the gallery will be cleaned by monitors after all classes and drop-in activities .
    It is with a sad heart that I tell you of Peggy Mahan's sudden passing
on August 7. Peggy was a wonderful person, a great artist, and our valued
treasurer for many years. If you are thinking of making a charitable contribution
in her memory, the family has requested all such donations go to PSAA,
where she was happily involved for so long.
    I hope to see more of our members attending the general meetings
and classes. Until then, stay well and enjoy this beautiful season.

Pine Shore Art Association
Volunteer Positions Open
September 2021

Volunteer positions are vital to our day-to-day efficient and effective functioning.  Each role is part of established committees and new leaders will receive lots of support and guidance from the outgoing chairs, the rest of the team, and the Board. 

Volunteers receive much in return for their efforts. Some join to learn new skills; others offer their
experience in any number of areas for the benefit of us all. Pine Shores gives volunteers the unique opportunity to interact with fellow artists in ways that foster new friendships and creative endeavors for ongoing artistic inspiration.

These positions are open NOW and training can begin immediately. Please consider joining the team of movers and shakers that keeps Pine Shores thriving.


Our next Art Chat will be this Tuesday, September 21st at 10am at the Tuckerton Library. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask feel free to do so but, at this point, to my knowledge it's not required. I checked the Ocean County Library's website and saw no recent changes to their covid-19 policies since the last Art Chat.

I hope to see you on Tuesday,
Nancy Glines
The August General Membership meeting is Monday, August 9th at 7pm. It is an IN-PERSON meeting.  Under the latest guidelines, registration for this meeting is no longer necessary. Masks are optional for those who are vaccinated.

Every Tuesday from 9-Noon, PSAA has a spot in the Stafford Farmers Market. The location is great because we are at the shed and protected if it should rain.

Any artist who wants to bring some of their art will be asked to promote Pine Shores and bring info to distribute. There is no fee to be there and the first day was quite successful. This is a great venue to get the word out about our association and has the potential for personal sales. If interested, please contact Linda Saladino at 609-660-8062.
