The 4x4s for our Christmas nursing home community service project have arrived. Many thanks go out to one of our founding members, Anne Huskey-Lockard for being our liason with the Miami County Community Foundation to acquire the 4x4s and for ordering, labeling and placing the hangers on them for us.
Susan Kline is again the project manager for this year. Anyone wishing to create these much appreciated Xmas gifts for the elderly may sign out the blank little canvases and then sign them back in as they are completed. Susan has the sign up sheet at her studio behind/through the Cafe Du Cirque.

This coming Saturday, September 18th, Logansport will be presenting "Art On the Avenue"
from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
Our member Rudy Ridenour will be displaying his abstract digital artworks there.
Go and give him your support.

Our next meeting is this coming Wednesday, September 15th, 7 p.m., at the Cafe Du Cirque when Teri Partridge, one of our members from Logansport, and an art teacher, will be doing her program on another collage technique.
Here I will use her quote: "This is a technique with water based paint and various papers. The process results in inspirational, one of a kind papers for you to use in collage, abstracts, journals, card making, backgrounds... the possibilities are endless."
Everyone will have a part of the project on Wednesday that will be returned to them in October.

Our following meeting in October we will be displaying our new works based on the chosen word "WOMEN"
I know a lot of us will come up with something for that, it's such an easy topic.
Keep creating......
