2009 was a challenging year for artists attempting to sell their work. Many of you may be as frustrated as the Board is with the lack of sales at recent shows.

We will continue to do our best to provide you with opportunities to have your work seen by the public through shows and paint-outs. Keep your website image up to date with your best work and keep painting!
