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,

As we begin yet another month of government extended quarantine, it continues to be important and neighborly to communicate with our members who may need some special attention from time to time. With this in mind, please don’t hesitate to call an older or physically challenged member who may need some assistance with getting groceries or medications, or just to say ‘hello’ during this time of social isolation. 

Members who are computer literate are likely to have a communication advantage over those who are not. An occasional phone call or written card or letter in a mailbox is about the extent of the communication these members may have. No one can be sure how long it will take to resume some form of ‘normal’ activities, but it appears it will be into June at least, so there’s still time to check up on members. 

Thanking you in advance for your compassion and consideration, we will get through these very challenging times together! 

 Please stay safe everyone! Linda

Hello everyone,

Wishing you all the best,
