As Pine Shores Art progresses towards the second half of the year, I am declaring June as Volunteer month.
I want to thank our volunteers for donating their time and efforts and for being part of the PSAA family. You volunteers are the wheel hub of the association that makes the operation of PSAA run smoothly. I hope you continue to volunteer whenever you can and in whatever capacity you can offer.
Thought for the month: Leave not a canvas blank. Color your world with happy thoughts and deeds.
A major upcoming event at the Pine Shores Art Association in July is the Art Patron Show – an exhibit not to be missed! This venue of over 50 paintings donated by PSAA artists is on display, and patrons may find an original painting for as little as $75 ! The reception for this fundraiser is on July 30th at the Stafford Fire house, right across from Pine Shores Art on Stafford Ave. Become a patron of this, our only fundraiser, and take home an original painting… and have a photo taken with the artist.
An Artistic view:
There are two flowers that are notably the flowers of the month of July – the Larkspur and the Water Lily. Many flowers, trees and other works from nature are shown in the artwork of the father of French impressionism, Claude Monet, whose pallet often featured earthy greens, russets and reds. Monet painted over 250 oil paintings in the water lily series alone.
Paintings by Claude Monet
August is the fifth month of this year to have 31 days. One extra day tagged on for artists to draw, paint, illustrate, take photos and simply create! I hope as an artist you are working on some awe-inspiring pieces through these summer months to enter in the upcoming shows at Pine Shores Art Association.
There will be a chance to show off your black and white only artwork (no color hues allowed) in the B&W Show. Then the Photography Show that always brings unusual and stunning photos to our gallery walls. And of course, that show where many of us work towards is the Fabulous Fakes show (submit on September 29th).
This is one not to miss. All of you imposters of Monet, Wyeth, Manet, Cezanne, Homer and other great masters can surface to meet the challenge of entering a copy-cat painting. Even some tongue-in-cheek artworks have appeared in the past.
Don’t forget our free DO YOUR OWN THING on Wednesdays to work on your artwork. Bring your lunch and create masterpieces and friends.
I hope to see you around the gallery in the upcoming days.
