Thanksgiving Paintout at Boyce Thompson-Sunday

*WOW- Please let your painting buddies know that there was a big error on our calendar- the last State Park paintout of the year is at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum on SUNDAY Nov. 29th. Please spread the word to all you painting buddies of the correct day.
*State Parks Gallery Show at the Mayo Clinic: more details will be coming and they will also be posted here. Important dates to remember: Thursday, January 21 st is the hand delivery and hanging day. Take down and pick up are on March 26th in the afternoon. Because the entire Ed. dept. of the State Parks was let go we have no place to accept shipped work or any place to store work, we apologize for any problems this might create. Keep in mind that the whole program is now being handled by volunteers- Mary Alice Daenzer and Cindy Carrillo want to see it continue but it will be and is now without help from State Parks. We are very fortunate that the Gallery Director at the Mayo Clinic still will host our show. An RSVP for your participation is needed by Jan.11th- this show is for any artwork that won 1,2,or 3rd during the 2009 Paint out series.

There will be a show in Jan. 2010 for the 2009 winners- we are working out the details and will have more info. for you all soon. Remember, the Mayo show is for the patients and staff of the Mayo clinic.
