ART CHAT - Nancy Glines - Our next Art Chat is Thursday, February 21st, 10am
at the Tuckerton Library. It is the policy of the Tuckerton Library that we do not bring Nude Art subject matter to the Library for our discussions. If anyone involved in Art Chat wishes to create or discuss this subject of Art, they are welcome to inquire at Pine Shores Art Association or to meet on their own with like-minded Artists outside of Art Chat. I am grateful for the welcome that we have all received at the Library and hope that this beneficial relationship can continue with your respect and cooperation.

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.  We had a really good attendance at the last Art Chat, the largest ever with 17 people. We welcomed some newcomers, as well as some we hadn't seen in a while. It was a very nice gathering with lots of interesting Art and conversation.  

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 for library closings or other pertinent information.

​Thank you for all the good wishes and support I have received as I become PSAA president. I feel honored to lead our talented artists with the executive board, Kathy Crocker, Mike Amato and Peggy Mahan and the Committee Chairs. I have been a member of PSAA since 2002, love our organization, its members and hope to prove worthy of your confidence.

Along with your help and support, we will continue to keep our association vibrant, successful and a welcoming environment for all who climb our stairs (or use the elevator) and visit this website. A heartfelt thanks to all our wonderful volunteers. My wish is that more members step up to volunteer for open positions so our organization will flourish for many years to come.
