President's Message


June 2, 2018

Are you ready to paint small this summer? Our miniature works show has gone back to its roots this summer. For the first time in many years, we will be back in the display cases at the Clovis Library. Since the Library doesn't have space for receiving, we will receive and Judge at the Veteran's Memorial District, and then set up the display that afternoon at the Library. 

The miniature works show is an opportunity for artists who paint miniatures to show off their skills and for those of us who don't to try something new

Since our display space is so limited, we have gone back to our original size of 5 x 7 and smaller. I look forward to the challenge and I hope you do as well.

Yes we will definitely be needing volunteers for receiving and judging so please keep that in mind.

The year has hardly begun and I'm very excited about the opportunities we have available to us. We have the Old West Show back in the Veteran's Room, thanks to Alice's wonderful negotiation skills, (Thank you Alice!). We hope to have our Small Works Show in either the Clovis or the Sunnyside Library (Dave Boothby is still working on this) so no promises as yet. Sunnyside library is where we have a year-round exhibit, except for the month and a half when SWA borrows the space for their spring ...

Despite some major issues, the Old West Show was received, judged and hung. It looked wonderful. The show location in the lobby of the Veteran's Building certainly drew plenty of positive attention and walk though traffic.

Unfortunately there were communication issues with the administration and next year's show will remain in the location only if those communication issues can be worked out.

We could only have pulled off the show with the help our dedicated members so it ...

Old West Show A Success

May 2, 2016

The Old West Show was a rousing success despite a few starting glitches. A big thank you goes out to all of you who turned out to help with the show. Special thanks also to our judge, Dennis Lewis who not only turned up for the reception, but also stayed and shared his knowledge with artists and guests.  A special insert has been included in this month’s issue showing the winners and a few shots of the show.

Speaking of shows, it’s time to get small. The miniature show will be held in Ju...
