Four Plein Air Painting Shows in November 2009

The crab guy did not come through for our Silvan Ridge reception, so we each need to bring hors d'œuvres or desserts to the November 22, Sunday, 1-4pm Artist Reception at Silvan Ridge 27012 Briggs Hill Road Eugene, Oregon 97405 Cynthia Nickles is out host. Hinman will have wine to taste or buy. They even sell wine by the glass.

The "Save the Old Schoolhouse" committee is hosting our reception at the Creswell Library Saturday November 14th, 2-4pm. I checked with Paul and they are bringing hors d'œuvres and desserts, but this is a small committee so maybe we should bring goodies to this event also. This is strictly optional, but I do believe it would be a nice jesture.

Guy Weese has requested images for our "Agrculture Art" Show scheduled for January at Emerald Art Center. If you have an image of a painting you would like to bring to our January show, please send it to me. thanks. Any agriclutural scene will do, from fields to market place. Thistle down and Friday Market come to mind.

Many of you have asked me to let you know when Sarkis was going to be on OPB’s Oregon Art Beat. I have just learned from Karen Antikajian that the program will air on Thursday, November 19th at 8pm and will repeat on Sunday, November 22 at 6pm. After the story airs, it will be online for anyone to view for free, at http://www.opb.org/artbeat.

Sarkis will also be doing painting demos at the U of O Bookstore (The Duck Store) from 10am to 6 pm on November 18th and 19th during their "Tools of the Trade" Sale.
