We have a very nice art exhibit at the Covenant Shores Retirement Community in Mercer Island. It is in their Lighthouse Gallery and will run until April 3rd. This was a backup location on somewhat short notice so is a volunteer show.
Our member's exhibit at the Seattle Design Center looks great and is on display until February 27th.
Member's of VALA, Venues for Local Artists, spoke at our January general meeting about their programs and opportunities, and how we can work together to enhance both group's programs. www.valaeastside.org is their website for more information.
Our February general meeting speaker is Mitch Albala, a local artist and teacher at Gage Academy, who will talk about Notan, or black and white studies to improve composition.
We are starting a project to redesign our website to a new platform. This effort is being led by Donna Kay and we're hoping this results in an easier to maintain site and simpler updates and management.
We've had a few issues on membership renewal dates but renewals should be able to be processed so go ahead and renew and we'll work on the date issue to fix it in the meantime.
