ART CHAT - Nancy Glines 

The next Art Chat session is scheduled for: 
Thurs. April 2nd, 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,
In response to the increasing risks associated with the COVID-19 virus, the PSAA board has determined it is necessary to curtail events in our association. As the spread of the virus may be contained by decreasing the instances of large groups or meetings, Stafford Township has closed our building as of March 17, so PSAA will be closed from now until further notice.  We will continue to reevaluate the need for protective measures to keep our members safe and to advise you 
of any updates.
    Please see page 2 of our Special Edition newsletter for Schedule Changes, check our website for updates, and look for email blasts with any new information. Let’s hope we can be up and running sooner, rather than later. Know that the board cares deeply about our members, and if you need help, let us know.  
    A special thank you to Sue Porter for all her efforts in getting us such a lovely new kitchen area. Her husband, Bob, along with Willy Mueller and Paul Hartelius did an outstanding job installing the cabinets and sink. Just another example of what makes PSAA such a great organization. Thank you for a job well done! We will all do our best to keep the new sink clean!

Be safe, and God Bless. Linda

Dear Art Chat Attendees... April 2nd Art Chat canceled:

When I sent the last Art Chat email, I was hopeful that we could meet again on April 2nd but, obviously so many things have changed since then that I can't forecast when we'll be able to get together again.

I hope all of you are staying well and not having too much trouble with the new restrictions on your lives.

I miss you all and look forward to picking up where we left off as soon as possible,

Nancy
