Creating a “president’s Message” can be difficult; either I
have so much to say that I can’t fit it all in, or I struggle with finding
something relevant to say! July was a hard month for our members. At the time
of this publication, John Roberts who has been a mainstay of the club for years
is still recuperating in the hospital from ulcers, and Mary Lou Griggs, another
long-time member was operated on for heart surgery and is still recovering. We
also heard that Frank Sidoti who is not a member but known to many of us went
to Arizona to be cared for by relatives.
This rather brought home to me how much we depend on each other for
support and encouragement.
We are so fortunate in Clovis Art Guild to have such good
friends to share our lives, our triumphs and yes, sometimes our misfortunes. I
hope you all are well and taking advantage of staying out of the heat by
expanding your painting, sculpting and carving. We have a show coming up this
fall. The Fall Open will be our last show before we go dark for the holidays,
and we planned it for receiving to come in just after the Fresno Fair Art Show.
This month our demonstrator will be Alice Wu, who will be
showing us some Chinese Painting techniques. This is a great opportunity to
learn about a little different type of art, so I hope to see all of you there!
