Party Time!

In our annual tradition, instead of a meeting we will party in December!  Vicki will send out details and the Zoom link in an email to all members later this week.  Secret Santas will be reveled and we will draw for lots of good prizes. Even if you are not a Secret Santa, plan to attend to be eligible for the door prizes. Dress up for the holidays and bring your own eggnog (or other beverage); let's celebrate!

2021 calendar to be revealed

Jeanne Dittmann will present a slideshow highlighting all of the 2021 calendar artwork. Any of the artists who are on the Zoom call that day will be invited to speak briefly about their inspiration and the process behind the creation of their work. We will also hold a live, online poll to determine our favorite work of art, and the winner will receive a free calendar as a prize. Calendars will be available to be purchased from Jeanne starting on the afternoon of the meeting -- arrangements may be made to pick up them up from her house (address in your directory or contact her to get it). The price is $10 per calendar (checks payable to WCG), and the transactions can be made with masks, minimal contact, and air hugs.

Jeanne will also give a Zoom tour of her studio, her walls of art, and her favorite storage solutions, with a possible appearance by a cat or two.
