Our Pineshores Outreach Program meetings are the third Wednesday of the odd months:
September 18th and November 20th
Toni Smirniw of the LBI library is holding the OCTOBER slot exclusively for PSAA. She also ADDED a new piece of information - she has a display cabinet for small sculptures and works of art that is also available for the month of October (it's not currently reserved for PSAA, but is available).
Please contact Toni Smirniw direct (609-494-2480) if you are interested in exhibiting as a solo or group and be sure to tell her you are a PSAA Member as the room is on hold specifically for us, and if you don't identify yourself as PSAA, she'll tell you the room is already booked.
Feel free to pass this info along to those you know in the LBI area.

Tom Rutledge received the plaque with artists Peg Mahan, Sue Porter, Nancy Sterr Lang, and Dee Turba looking on. Ed Rennar and fellow carpenter Joe St. Pierre, who constructed the mural frame, were also on hand in the audience.
Painted Poetry combines efforts by 16 artists and 16 poets to produce
a unique experience at the Surf City Branch of the Ocean County Library
Each artist submits an original artwork that is interpreted by a poet in the form of an original poem. Each poet also submits an original poem that the paired artist interprets in an original painting. This is the 6th Painted Poetry exhibit and all 32 poems and paired paintings will be on display in the Library until the end of September.
A reception for meeting artists and poets, as well as readings by the poets will be held on August 14 from 6-8pm.
A commemorative paperback book containing all art and poetry will be available to purchase at the reception. The exhibit was coordinated this year by Susan Cummings and Carol Freas and a majority of the artists are members of Pine Shores. Show was hung by Chuck Person (no photo), Carol, Irene Bausmith and Paul Hartelius.
