however, Gabriella Jaramillo will be moving to Mexico City at the end of

the month, leaving one spot available.

It was restated that if a member has a health issue, that person will be

given a one year grace period from all requirements required to maintain

an active membership.

If a member requires a replacement of his/her name tag there is a cost.

Check with Richard for details.

Workshop Chair, Jai Wangsai, is done with a successful year of

Exhibit Chairs, Beth Collins and Linda Libby, reminded members of the

PBG Juried Show Reception on Sunday, May 5 from 2-4 pm. This

installation hangs until the end of May.

The last hanging for our group until the Fall, is at Columbine Library in July.

Please check the PBG website for further directions….Fredia Cox is in

charge of this show.

Zing Credit Union is updating its art presence. They will have an “Art Wall

Walk”. PBG has been asked to hang a show from October-December


If you are picking up a piece of art that belongs to a different artist, PLACE

YOUR INITIALS in the box for the pick up. The committee needs to know

WHO picked up that painting, not who painted the piece.Tabled for further discussion: Beth and Linda strongly suggested we have

a committee look into the idea of having a group established for each

installation before its hung. There would be a different group ready to

handle the drop off, installation and take down of that exhibit.

Also, each member would give information about the painting to hang in

the exhibit (title, artist’s name, medium, price and contact phone number)

before check in. All information would be put into a spread sheet and the

artist would just have to check in at the venue, all of the paperwork is done

ahead of time.
