WCAG Greeting Card Contest

I would like to thank all artists who participated in our greeting card contest.  We had eleven entries and the WCAG membership attending the meeting voted on which design would best represent WCAG on an all occasion greeting card.  The winner is Lynn Kessel's "Dragonfly."  Congratulations Lynn!

November Framer's Gallery Report

Yes, the busy holidays are upon us!  But we can always squeeze in some time for art.  The following WCAG members are exhibiting their works at the Framer's Gallery (601 S. Main Street in Georgetown, TX) during the month of November:  Kay Dimitri, Gretchen Hecht (GretchenArt), Lynn Kessel, Wes Odel, Luisa-Maria Potter, Leland A. Reneau and Alexis Templeton.  Their works will be on display until December 5th, so be sure to go by and take a look.

The First Friday event was, as usual, a very nice evening.  The People's Choice voting was tight.  There were three works that were tied and one piece had one more vote than the other three.  Congratulations goes to Wes Odell for his photograph, "Jazz at the Star Cafe."

December will be "mini's month."  Not only will the size be "mini," but so will the hanging fees.  All WCAG members can hang 4 "mini's" (8"x10" or smaller) for only $10, or 2 for $5, or 1 for $2.50, etc.  If you would like to participate, please contact me, Connie Hartsfield, at charts303@yahoo.com to make a reservation.
