ART CHAT - Nancy Glines 

The next Art Chat session will be: 
Thurs. February 20th, at 10am.

I hope everyone had a Happy Valentine's Day!   And hope you can make it to the next Art Chat which will be this Thursday, February 20th at 10am at the Tuckerton Library, located at 380 Bay Ave in Tuckerton.

Art Chat was formed for the purpose of sharing a common interest in Art and Photography with anyone who wishes to attend. Participating Artists are asked to bring a painting or photograph to share but, it's not required. The goal is to encourage and share knowledge in a friendly and helpful environment. 

Many thanks to the Tuckerton Library for making the Museum room available for our meetings and making us feel very welcome. The only policy that they have requested that we follow is that we do not bring Nude works of Art to our discussions at the Library. Anyone with interest in that subject is encouraged to contact Pine Shores Art Association for information and classes.  Art Chat sessions are twice monthly, on the first and third Thursdays of the month.

For last minute cancellations or changes, please check PSAA's Facebook page or 
the oceancountylibrary.org for Library closings or other pertinent information.

Hope to see you at Art Chat! 

- Nancy Glines

I trust everyone has recovered from the holidays and is getting
back into a routine that includes painting for all our shows
that are fast approaching. 

We also really need members to
think about helping fill open positions. Our organization is
only as good as it's volunteers who keep it running. We are
blessed with wonderful volunteers, some who have been working for many years. Please look at the what PSAA especially
needs help with now on page two of this month's newsletter

Thank you for all your support and a happy Leap Year to all.
