CVWS GENERAL MEETING OCTOBER 13, JOSLYN CENTER, 7PM

The October 13 General Meeting kicks off the 2014-2015 CVWS Season. Come to see the Summer Challenge entries, Painter of the Month works by Board members, and share your summer news with all your painting buddies. The meeting starts at 7pm but come a bit early to get in some  extra visiting!

Members it is time to complete your SUMMER CHALLENGE, “FLORALS, FLOWERS AND BOUQUETS”

Painting by Connie Collins

                                                                                                                                                                       

Try something new like abstracting a floral, using non local colors or painting in a different style than you usually do. Have some fun with it!!

Bring your paintings (up to three) to the October meeting on October 13, 2014.  They do not have to be matted and framed, but matted is encouraged because your work looks so much better!  All will be accepted.

THERE WILL BE PRIZES!!!!!!!

The paintings will be judged in the following groups:

  1. Painters who have never entered anything
  2. Painters who have entered shows or painter of the month, but never won a ribbon
  3. Ribbon winners
  4. Old pros, teachers and the like

 

*****DECIDE WHICH GROUP YOU FIT INTO.  PUT YOUR GROUP’S NUMBER ON A PIECE OF TAPE AND ATTACH TO YOUR PAINTINGS***************

 

Don’t forget  “ WHAT I DID THIS SUMMER”

If you traveled, painted in a special place, did something new or went to a workshop this summer, PLEASE bring your paintings or new ideas from this experience to share with the rest of us.

2014 – 2015 Season, Time to Renew Your Membership


MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL

As you know, all memberships expire on June 30, 2014 (except for those who have recently joined or renewed). In the past, the membership dues had to be paid by October 1 to remain current. This is also true for this year. If the dues and completed membership form are not received by December 31, you will be unable to enter the 2015 Annual Show. Also, only current members’ names and addresses will be printed in the directory. So, to avoid any late fees and/or miss out on any of the activities for the 2014 – 2015 year, please re-new early.

Membership forms can be downloaded from the web site (www.cvws.org), under “Join/Renew.” If you want one mailed to you, please contact the membership chair at janiskpc@earthlink.net any-time or call 760.340.6408. Important note: memberships are complete only when the dues are paid AND a member-ship form is filled out and returned. For those paying on line via Pay Pal must also download, fill out and mail the membership form. Both are necessary to remain current. Any questions? Please e-mail and/or call: janiskpc@earthlink.net, 760.340.6408.

THANKS SO MUCH!
