December 2017 Paint Rag
Volume 75, Issue 8
Join us for our Annual Holiday Party! Bring finger food (savory or sweet) to share. This is an opportunity to socialize with your fellow artists and visitors.
Date: Tuesday, December 5, 2017
Time: 6:30 to 9:00 pm
Location: San Fernando Valley Arts & Cultural Center, 18312 Oxnard Street, Tarzana
2017 has been an eventful year. We have accomplished much, individually and as a group. Nine fabulous artists have offered us inspiration and education at the monthly demos. The membership, in turn, has shown that inspiration – both in our main art show and in the multiple ‘mini’ shows. Like all wonderful things, however, 2017 is coming to an end. Thus, while we can look back with satisfaction, the true challenge is to look forward with anticipation. I would like to call on each and every member of the San Fernando Valley Art Club to join in the task of planning the coming year. We need officers, we need volunteers, and above all we need ideas. This is your club. It will be what you make it. Make it great!
