Speaker Schedule Set for Fall

We are getting set for another great fall speaker and presentation season at our General Meetings, the 3rd Thursday of every month. See our schedule on the right and our Guest Speaker link above.

1. Our volunteer show is up and ready to view from September 6th through November 1st. Come see the fine work by the members whose hard work makes our group a success.  

2. Our Plein Air sessions continue through September 23rd. See our Plein Air link for the details and schedule. There is also a Plein Air contest as part of the Snoqualmie Railroad Days festival that is a fun event with no entry fee, on August 16th.  Here is our group painting at Olallie State Park, on a beautiful sunny day.













3. Our Annual Juried Open Show is now accepting entries using the CaFE show system. Deadline is Sept 30 for entries.

4. We have plenty of volunteer opportunities, with Publicity Chair the current primary need, and we're also looking for a new Treasurer as Deanna has held this job for 3 years now and needs a break. We'll pay for Quickbooks training as needed. Contact any of your board members if you are interested. Also, we need a few gallery assistants for those who can't attend regular meetings but want to put in their volulnteer time helping behind the scenes with gallery tasks.  

5. We now have an intern to serve as interim webmaster but will still have a need by year end for a volunteer who knows or is willing to learn the Joomla open source web development tool and help us keep our website updated. We have a small budget available to help pay for a few hours a month or so of work. Let me know if you might have any contacts interested. Thanks. 


Happy art making.
