ART CHAT - Nancy Glines 

The next Art Chat session will be: 
Thurs. December 19th, at 10am.

We're planning to celebrate the holidays at Art Chat on December 19th. Last year we had cookies and cider and other goodies that members brought in. If you have something in mind that you'd like to bring, please let me know. I will bring paper plates, cups and napkins.

We had a nice time last year, enjoyed some delicious home made treats and each other's excellent company!

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!

I send a wish that all our members enjoy celebrating with family and friends during December’s beautiful holidays. May your homes be filled with love and laughter, and may 2020 bring you all that you desire, especially good health! 

Let's make the new year a great year for painting! I was glad to see you at the December 2nd General Meeting - an evening of socializing and trimming our tree. December birthday people (including me) brought goodies for all to enjoy.

Sent on behalf of Nancy Edwards,

Happy December Members,

We know its a busy time of year...
To quote from the song 'Silver Bells'
"City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style. In the air there's a feeling of Christmas..." 


We are writing to remind you that there are two popular PSAA activities, shown below, with room for more member participation, which may get lost in the Christmas bustle.

One is the collection of funds or contributions to PSAA children’s Art Sacks and the other is the PSAA Winter Luncheon. 
PSAA Art Sacks for kids…(can donate online too and PSAA elves will do the shopping)
PSAA Holiday Luncheon (rsvp by Dec 9)

Hoping for a Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas for each of you,
​C. Rush

And... 
our annual holiday luncheon is almost here !
