President’s Message


Sharon Harris, OAG President

Hi All,

Happy October Greetings to all,

Time is marching on, and it seems right now we all have time on our hands as we try to patiently outwait this pandemic.  Once again, in consideration of risks, your Board members have decided to cancel any in person meetings until January, so this fall let’s stay busy making as much art as we can in preparation for our 70th Anniversary Art Exhibition in February.  I know Lee and Lynn have put a lot of effort into this show and I believe it is going to be great.  Hopefully at that time we’ll all be able to get out to the Brick to see the wonderful works that we have been creating.

Speaking of creating, the On Line Show that Lee, Lynn, Barbara, Jan K. and others put together is now available for all to see—well, from their computers or iPhones that is.  Winners are announced and I feel everyone will enjoy touring the exhibit that Barbara put together for us.  The link is on our webpage and Facebook page.  So check it out, it is awesome.  Thank you ladies for making this opportunity available to our house bound members this fall.

Last, we will resume our One Blood exhibit as soon as we can get everyone back together in January to introduce themes and a new process for delivering and hanging the works.  Jan K has some great ideas that she is going to introduce to make the exhibit even easier for all of us to enter works in.  It is a great opportunity to hang and sell our work without paying commissions, so be making art now in preparation to show, sell and prosper in the new year.

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

Stay safe,

Sharon Harris, President
