ART CHAT - Nancy Glines  - Everyone attending Art Chat at the Tuckerton Library enjoyed it very much. We felt like friends gathering in someone's home to chat about our artwork. We enjoyed the warm and pleasant room that was well lit and had a nice table to display our Artwork. We were warmly welcomed by the Library staff and felt right at home. We had new Artists join us who were a very nice addition to our group. All of us learned something new from our lively discussion.
    Many thanks to the Tuckerton Library for making us feel so welcome. And thank you too to those who are spreading the word about the Art Chat. It's continuing to grow into a very enjoyable and worthwhile experience for those interested in sharing their knowledge and love of Art.
    Hope everyone is enjoying the Spring we are having! Hopefully this warm weather will continue. The first June Art Chat is planned for Thursday, June 7th at 10am at the Tuckerton Library. Hope you can join us.
   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 theoceancountylibrary.org for library closings or other pertinent information.

The 2018 Spring Show 
is on display in 
Pine Shores Art Association's 
gallery 
What a fabulous show ! 
You will not want to miss it.

Through the month of May
Demonstrations
As an artist, you’ve been given the gift of great observation skills. Be sure to utilize those skills in your art. Learn to incorporate the Elements of Art (line, shape, forms, space, color, texture) and Principals of Design (balance, emphasis, movement, pattern, repetition, proportion, rhythm, variety, unity) in your art. For example…think about a fence… instead of a perfect white fence, add some color, make the wood slightly different sizes, add some texture…this allows the viewer to look twice instead of saying…it’s a fence…and move on. I challenge you to read more about the Elements and Principals and think about how lucky you are to be an artist. During the past dull winter months; you were able to add a little color! 
Happy Spring…Happy Painting!
