For those of us who are also members of DSWP&S, there is a show at the DYC in July, a nautical theme, entries to be in by June 24. Nancy C ad Paula W, hope you enter. The theme is nautical. Party on the Saturday at the DYC. If anyone cannot get their work there on July 16, I will be glad to take it. Please reAD the prospectus, as you either have to borrow an easel from DYC or bring your own.
If you have a website, it should be listed on the “Members Art” page of our WTCFA website. Get your name listed even if you are part of a organization website page as Marcia Allegranza is. Every bit of publicity could help. Take a look!
