Dear GWOCP Family,
I am thrilled to serve GWOCP as president 2020-2021 and working with each of you. I have kept my sanity through the pandemic with painting, planning projects to paint, planning our year together, research, and reading. I hope you also have been painting. We have a fabulous year planned and
WE NEED YOU to participate.
Let me first mention the Art Retreat/Convention, May 20th, 21st and 22nd, 2021 in Hephzibah, GA located At Home with Suzanne [thank you Suzanne for agreeing to have our Retreat with you and for chairing this event] giving us something to really set our minds on and giving us an event with which we can look forward. Our theme is Venetian Carnival, and we have three outstanding guest artists; Nancy Bergman, Diane Cooley Williams and Joyce Duwlet.
We are planning a Live Auction, Demonstrations, and different Paint Ins with the
three guest artists each day. We will have the Museum Competition, Club Displays, a Food Truck each day [how exciting is this], a Banquet for Installation of New Officers, a Memorial Table and Hospitality Bags.
Something new will be BIG Raffle Baskets each club will provide and fill with items they think will make others want to purchase tickets for their basket. I look forward to seeing EACH of you at our Art Retreat.
WE NEED YOU to participate!
Have you ever thought about growing our membership? We need everyone to think how they can get a new member for GWOCP for now and the future. Start by talking about our organizations every time you see a friend. Show them photos of your work, give gifts you have painted, reach out to youth and introduce them to our art through visiting classes, displays, and exhibits, demonstrations, art retreats with you. Teach your children and grandchildren to paint. If each club could gain one new member this year, it would be terrific.
WE NEED YOU to plant these seeds of interest!
A challenge ahead for all of us is working around the corvid-19 pandemic. When possible plan to meet but wear masks and use safe distancing. WE NEED YOU to stay safe.
I was elected to serve you. If at any time you need my help or have a question, send me and email or call me....
With love to each of you, Having a big sale, on-site celebrity,
or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it.
Eloise Pino GWOCP President 2020 - 2021
