ART CHAT - Nancy Glines 

The Art Chat session for this month will be: 
Thurs. August 15th, at 10am.

Art Chat is held 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.

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!
