President’s Message

AUGUST 2020

Sharon Harris, OAG President

Hi All,

Greetings all,

Greetings all,

Hope everyone is painting away as we sit out the increases in COVID-19 infections that are soaring across our three counties.  In Citrus we went from July 1 @ 241 cases to July 26 @ 1010.  In reading Ocala News July 20 Marion and surrounding counties have increased at even higher rates than Citrus. So, right now there is little new news because of our lock down for safety.

Nevertheless,  Lee, Lynn, Jan K, Barbara and Sue have provided a great online exhibit for members to participate in.  You have received the prospectus and application form by email, and you can also find this on our website, ocalaartgroup.org. Barbara is waiting to receive your entries before September 7.

We are tentatively planning to meet again September 14 at the Brick and Gail has organized a great demo for that day if we are able to get together.  Remember to keep a close eye on your emails from Sherese and Barbara’s postings on Face Book and the website for confirmation.  If the virus is under control, we will confirm the meeting by September 9.

Jan Kiszonak is postponing distributing prospectus and application forms for OneBlood Exhibit until after we have been able to have our first meeting.

Finally, thanks to those folks who got their membership dues paid, if you haven’t had a chance to renew please send your $35 to OAG, PO Box 772834, Ocala, Fl 34477-2834 in time to participate in the Online exhibit as it is for paid members only. (form page 7)

Keep making art and we’ll try to keep you in informed about all that is being planned.

Stay safe,

Sharon Harris, President
