President’s Message

Hello everyone:

The ARTWORKS 2022 Show Reception was a success with very nice food and great conversation. The show itself is of very high quality. No piece entered could be considered less than excellent. You must see it to believe it.

Our next competition that will be the open to all artists is the Square-Off 2023 show. The take-In will be Thursday, December 29, 2022. It will run to January 31. Get your work squared up for another Art Show experience. The rules have been relaxed in that we can use frames other than matte black and if you are using Gallery Wrapped canvas, you can paint the sides. The rules will be published soon. I just wanted to get you all moving on thinking about the square format.

We will have more information on the availability of hanging/sellig our work at Bay Area Cardiology at our General Meeting. There have been sales of the work of our members.

If anyone is looking for a position on our Board or in one of our committees, we are always thankful for the application of your talents to our League. It is rewarding work as far as I have seen from my personal experience. It also connects us closer to each other as a society of artists.

I am always praying for the good health and great success of you all.

Christopher Klein, President
