President's Report


What a busy, busy month we have had.  Closing the Casas Adobes Gallery and moving to our new gallery at La Encantada.  I want to thank all the volunteers who helped make this happen with a special thank you to the Gallery Management team, Melissa Rogers, Wendy Baldwin, Marnie Ehlers, Linda Heidingsfelder and Lavonne McCord.  There are too many other volunteers that helped to list here but you know who you are and consider this a BIG Thank You!!!

See other articles in this newsletter regarding updates of what has happened and what will happen in the next month. 

One item of note is we will be doing a split the pot drawing starting at our March 2nd meeting.  Tickets will be $5 each or 5 for $20.  The proceeds will go toward purchasing chairs and other items for the new gallery.  We will draw the winning ticket on March 16th, 8:00 pm at our Grand Opening event.  

Have an artful month and I hope to see you at our upcoming events.
