Monthly meetings normally include an educational program. Please join us on the second Thursday of each month. Social - 6:30 pm; Business Meeting - 7:00 pm; Educational Program - 8:00pm. There are no meetings in July and August and the December meeting is a holiday dinner. Look for the Spring Program to be posted soon. The general public is invited to attend all general meetings. General Meetings through December include the following:
October is Dan Beck, OPA award winning artist, now making Wilmington his home with a new gallery and studio space on Castle St, will share his work, discuss his process and provide a short demo on his approach to starting a painting.
November is a reschedule of mixed media artist extraordinaire, Melissa Manley. Her work includes metal, assemblage, collage, as well as altered books. Join us for a creative adventure!
December is the Holiday Dinner - I hope to confirm today - Shell Island is booked for that Thursday but Wednesday 12/10 is available? Will check with board on that potential change...
