Letter from the President

May 2019 President's Letter

The month of May tends to be one of celebrations, Graduations and Mother's Day. Here at the
Guild, I thoroughly enjoy how we celebrate the ARTS. The more time you spend at our events,
openings, classes and demos the more we can spark our own creativity. April’s Photography
Show was really impressive and even though it is not my medium, I gained so much from
attending the opening and a follow up discussion by the artist at their monthly meeting, which is
open to everyone. Our workshop with Joe Gyurcsak brought the participants outside for a day
of plein air painting. Our location certainly lends itself to some beautiful views to paint. I hope
to see more members take full advantage of their membership and as always May your
creativity soar!

Artistically Yours,
AnnMarie Dario
