November 16, 2019 Bi-annual Meeting
Twenty-one members gathered on November 16 for our most recent bi-annual meeting at Mary McCarty's Community Center in Milwaukie, Oregon.
Alice Debo Fredericy distributed the much-anticipated alphabet journals, which was our group project for 2019. These represent over a year of planning and work by Alice, and the 29 members of our group who created the art for these beautiful journals.
Dorota Haber-Lehigh treated us to a display of the portfolio she completed for her diploma from the Society of Botanical Artists Distance Course.
We celebrated our 7-year anniversary as an organization. Janene Walkky presented flowers to 2 of our founding members, Janet Parker and Jane Levy Campbell. Janet announced that Janene will be taking over as president in 2020.
We discussed recent events: the Lan Su exhibit and the workshop with Jeanne Debons. We looked to the future, with ideas for new exhibits and upcoming workshops.
Alice revealed our next group project: fabric with a botanical theme.
The afternoon kept us busy with a mini-workshop on matting, presented by Deb Rossi.
