ART CHAT - Nancy Glines - Our next Art Chat is Thursday, April 18th, 10am
at the Tuckerton Library. It is the policy of the Tuckerton Library that we do not bring Nude Art subject matter to the Library for our discussions. If anyone involved in Art Chat wishes to create or discuss this subject of Art, they are welcome to inquire at Pine Shores Art Association or to meet on their own with like-minded Artists outside of Art Chat. I am grateful for the welcome that we have all received at the Library and hope that this beneficial relationship can continue with your respect and cooperation.

Many thanks to the Tuckerton Library for making us feel so welcome. I found out from the Tuckerton Library staff that I need to adjust our schedule for May and June because of school groups coming through the library on May 16th.  Our time is 11am on May 16th.  The Library also needs us to change the date for our first meeting in June to Wednesday, June 5th instead of our usual Thursday.  

The Tuckerton Branch Library is located at 380 Bay Avenue, in Tuckerton.  We will use the room on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month and start at 10am when the Library opens to the public.  Check the "Pine Shores Art" page on Facebook for any last minute changes or cancellations. Or, check at for library closings or other pertinent information.

Also, the Borough of Beach Haven is currently showing memorabilia and artwork of LBI scenes in its new facility. Most of the art is by our Pine Shores Artists.
