Art Hang Out Time
The Third Saturday of the month: February 20th 11:30 - 2pm
Continuing this month we will have VAL Hangout Time on the third Saturday of the month which in February will be the 20th from 11:30-2 pm.
This will be a time where artists get together for a few hours to create in the medium of their choice. This activity will be free to members but we invite anyone to come join us for $3.00. Masks will be required at this time.
Bring a project you would like to work on and have fun creating with other artists. Our first Hangout was January 16th and we had 3 artists attend. We sure would like more so hope you will consider coming. Besides the fellowship, our artists might be able to help you improve your own skills.
Our other upcoming dates will be March 20, April 17, and May 15th. We will also have artist intake for the spring show on the 17th.
Be sure and put these dates on your calendar. ART, FELLOWSHIP AND FUN!!

March 6 Seussical Event
Annual Spring Youth Art Show
Our spring Youth Art Show will be upon us sooner than we think.
The week of April 17th will be set aside to take in entries, hang the show, judge the show and of course, the Reception for the winners which will be on the 24th of April.
Just a note from a former member, Marilyn Key
Painting time is limited as care giving is 24/7 but her paintings are still winning some awards. She belongs to an art group that has monthly contests at their meetings and the winners are displayed in 3 locations in Weatherford.
Marilyn’s husband Wayne has advanced Alzheimer’s so she is his caregiver. She would love to hear from her friends at the art league if you so desire. Her address is : Marilyn Key

GALLERY CHANGE THIS MONTH!!!
It’s time to change out the art on the gallery walls. We would like for artists to come remove what has been up since the Bazaar and bring new artwork on Thursday and Friday, February 4th and 5th. The art will be hung then on Saturday, the 6th.
We hope to have a lot of new creations in our gallery up until the Youth Art Show in April. Remember we are open 1:00-5:00 all three days. If you need to bring them on Saturday, please bring them as early as possible after 1:00 so we will be able to get everything hung.
