Plein Air - A benefit for Grace Hudson Museum
Saturday, October 20, 2018, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Contact Rhonda Kyrias for location and fee information.
The Critique Group is back from it's break and will be meeting at the Corner Gallery on Saturday, October 13, at 10:00 a.m. (parking is easier if you arrive a bit before 10:00 as the class next door starts at 10:00.
MCAA has reserved the two front windows of the Corner Gallery for the month of November and will sponsor a "Members Show".
Artwork will need to be dropped off at the Corner Gallery on Tuesday, October 30th and picked up on Saturday, November 24th.
There is room for approximately 20 pieces of art, so if you would like to participate, please contact Rhonda Kyrias as soon as possible either by email at email@example.com or phone 707-467-9651.
And, don't miss the opening reception on First Friday Artwalk on November 2!
For more than 60 years many, many people have put their hearts and hands into keeping MCAA rolling along. However, no one has expressed a willingness to help out with several functions/ positions publicized for quite some time. We know people are very busy these days.
The Board will need to meet to consider if MCAA can continue to do the many things we try to do for the Members. Without more committed help, we will need to determine whether MCAA can be “reshaped” so that the organization can remain sustainable.
If you have thoughts on how MCAA might conserve energy, streamline, or otherwise “reshape” itself, please e-mail Diana Steele at or call 707-743-2256 to discuss your ideas.
