Our dear friend and member, Don Pagano, passed away recently. Memorial Mass is scheduled for Saturday, March 9 @ 5:00 pm at St. Mary's of the Angels in Ukiah.
For years, Don was in charge of our Critique Group and an artist who always had time to encourage and inspire others. Until just recently, he painted each and every day. He will be missed.

...presents "Indelible Impressions," eight artists demonstrating mastery in the many techniques of printing in their artwork. The show runs through March 1st.
We've already heard rave reviews about this print show! Since the gallery has limited hours, Doug Browe has generously offered to open the gallery on two additional evenings - Wednesday, February 20 and Wednesday, February 27 from 4:30 - 6:30 pm. He hopes this will allow us all a chance to see the print exhibit before it leaves at the end of the month.
The Mendocino College Art Gallery is located on the Ukiah Campus, 1000 Hensley Creek Rd, Ukiah, Ca.
...at the Corner Gallery from February 26, 2019 to March 30, 2019 featuring California sculptor Ishmael Rodriguez. The opening reception will be held March 1, 2019 from 5:00 - 8:00 pm. Don't miss it!

...is a long-term project undertaken by the Mendocino College and I've been asked to help share the details with our members. You may want to become personally involved, or know someone that can use this information. Many of us have have taken classes at the college and it remains a vital resource to the entire community. -Svetlana

...our member, Peggy Hebrard, told us that a lot of artists were affected in Paradise by the Camp Fire and she wondered if there was some way that MCAA could offer them some help.
The Board met and decided that making a financial donation to their art association wouldn't fit with our organizational guidelines, but voted to offer any of the displaced artists who found themselves in Mendocino or Sonoma Counties a free membership for 2019. Not only have they lost their homes, studios and belongings, but their community support as well. Many of our local artists keenly understand what they are going through and have appreciated the ongoing support of their friends and fellow artists at MCAA and we hope that we can do the same for the Paradise artists. So, if you hear of anyone that might be interested, please let me know.
In addition, Peggy has offered to be the liaison for accepting individual donations of art materials and storing them until the artists up in Paradise are ready to receive them. For some people, getting back to some sort of art work immediately has been very helpful in the healing...and waiting process. So, if you have something you'd like to contribute, please contact Peggy Hebrard either by phone 707-459-2121 or email, .
