    Members meeting. Bring a potluck dish to share for lunch. Please register by 9/1 and indicate whether you will participate in framing (by using the correct registration type) so we know how many to buy.

    Join us as Cindy Gilberti teaches us how to frame a 6"x6" painting. Bring a finished 6"x6" painting on firm mounted board/gator board (not loose paper) and $25 for the complete kit of a black composite plein air frame to hold a 6x6 painting, pastel spacer, glass, back dust cover, and hanging hardware. You and easily cut a larger gator board mounted paper into smaller pieces. If you wish to order additional 6"x6" framing supplies, please let Cindy (gilbertifineart@gmail.com) know prior to September 1. 

    You can leave your framed painting for a miniatures show "Petite Pastels" ending 11/1 for a $5 cash fee.  All paintings will be sold for the same price ($125, first come, first served) and Gilberti Gallery will take no commission as PPAL is paying an upfront fee. First, second and third place ribbons will be awarded as well as People's Choice.

    Reception 10/18 6-8. Pick up unsold work 10-4 on 10/31. Please coordinate with Cindy Gilberti (gilbertifineart@gmail.com) if you need to schedule an alternate pick up date.
