There have been a few errors in the newsletter lately regarding Critique being listed as program night. This was my mistake, as I send the calendar list to Mary Jo, who does an excellent job at putting together our Newsletter. I would like to apologize for anyone who was mislead by this error. Please note, the first Thursday of every month is always Critique night. Program night is always the second Thursday of every month.
April 3rd will be Critique night, not Program night.
You may reference the website calendar which is correct if you ever have doubts or questions.
The January 2014 newsletter is now available!
Please note an early version was e-mailed with a few errors regarding Reed's Lake. This copy has been corrected.
During our November program Dennis O'Mara told his GVA audience the printmaker believes his "wood has soul" because the age and grain of the wood leaves its mark on the print. This statement was a great introduction to his printmaking presentation. His starting point in the history of printmaking was the Japanese artist.
