Of Interest

Congratulations to Rosemarie Leonardo who recently won an award at the Cooperstown Art Exhibit for a floral watercolor.

If you would like to use your favorite medium and paint one or several greeting cards to send to our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please let Suzanne Arndt know.  Call her at 607-829-6753 or email her at Suzarndt@aol.com  (subject: greeting cards).  Once a date, time and place are finalized, she will let you know and we can get a group together to paint.  This would be a nice way to express our appreciation to our servicemen and women.  First thought was to create patriotic designs.  Then a suggestion was made to paint scenes of Delaware County to remind them of home.  Either way, we hope you will join us.

Grant Information

A number of our members donate their time and art to other organizations.  If you have done so in 2009-2010, please call our secretary, Kathy Moore, at (607-865-4734).  This is just for our records.  It can help us when we apply for grants.  Thank you.
