ART CHAT - Nancy Glines 

The next Art Chat session is scheduled for: 
Thurs. xxxxx, at 10am

Dear Art Chat Attendees:
In light of the news regarding the Corona virus, I went on the Ocean County Library website and learned that they are cancelling all Library programs and the use of meeting rooms and spaces by outside groups through March 31st. Therefore, the next possible Art Chat will be April 2nd. It's impossible to know when the Library will be back to business as usual but, I'll check the Library's website and keep you posted.

Stay well, enjoy the lovely Spring weather and keep creating. We'll have a lot of new Art and Photography to share when we meet again.

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

HELP WANTED
Dear PSAA members,

Happy Summer of 2020, one like no other we have known. Hopefully all of our members are well and safe. I came across a quote by James Baldwin that I want to share with you because I believe it is so appropriate for what we are living through: 
"Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced". In this time of uncertainty and reopening, this is a thought we can all live with and the board has been very busy doing just that. 

When PSAA is allowed to reopen, new procedures will be implemented to keep
everyone safe, and your board wants you to be aware of them before you come back. Soon you will receive copies of forms you will be asked to fill out and sign upon
arrival each time you come, and new guidelines for how we will function at PSAA. Nothing needs to be done now, but please be sure to look them over so you will
have an idea of how our organization will change. 

Thank you to all members who responded so positively to our recent survey. Your responses warmed our hearts. If you won a ribbon in one of the online shows, you will be receiving it in the mail. When I know something definite from the township, you will be notified. Stay well, and I look forward to seeing you in the near future. 

Linda

Events from the middle of April will be addressed when we know how long this closure will be in effect.
Greetings everyone,

I hope this finds all of you doing well since the last time we met. Since the Governor was beginning to allow places to reopen, I emailed our Tuckerton Librarian, Cindy who was kind enough to respond this morning. She said that the library will be opening next Monday but, "At this time, the library is not planning to permit any in-person library programming or outside group meetings. Besides that, our meeting room is being used for quarantining materials, and the space you used to gather in is just too small for your group, considering our 25% capacity requirement and social distancing.

Cindy asked me to find out if anyone would be interested in video sessions which they're apparently working on but, aren't available at this time.

Personally, I would like to find a location for us to meet outdoors so, if anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them and could present ideas to all of you for a consensus.

So, for now, we practice patience along with our "social distancing". At least the weather has improved and hopefully we'll all get outside to enjoy the summer and find things worthy of painting.

Best wishes,
Nancy Glines
