President’s Message

JULY 2020

Sharon Harris, OAG President

Hi All,

Greetings all,

As most of you know the pandemic is continuing to push it’s ugly head further into our lives. As a consequence we had to cancel our much anticipated plein aire outing at Tuscawilla Park for July 13. 

Nevertheless, Gail has got some great programs lined up for us starting September 14 to be held at the Brick, courtesy of MCASo be sure you’ve paid your MCA dues and hopefully we will see each other again in September.

In spite of not being able to meet, Lee Asta, Lynn King, Sue Primeau, Barbara Fife, Sherese Mesko, and Jan Kiszonak have organized a great online exhibiting opportunity for our members. 
Registration to enter the exhibit is open now, just make sure your dues are paid up.  For more info read the prospectus included in this newsletter, and on our website ocalaartgroup.org/exhibits/.

Additionally, Jan Kiszonak plans to organize an exhibit at One Blood beginning in September so if you have any thoughts or would like to help her, send an email and let her know your ideas.

Finally, just so you know Heather and I have completed filing all our state and federal registrations and tax reports for 2020.

To keep up with OAG happenings, be sure to read your monthly newsletter that Sherese sends via email the first of every month.  Also, 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. Membership form page 8 of this newsletter.

Hope you all are doing well and staying safe during this difficult time. Your Board continues to work on your behalf via emails and monthly Zoom meetings.  Keep making art and we’ll try to keep you in informed about all that is being planned.

Happy July 4th,

Sharon Harris, President
