ART CHAT - Nancy Glines - Just a reminder that this week's Art Chat will start an hour later than usual due to the school children touring the Library.

The Art Chat schedule for the next three months will be: 
Thurs. May 16th at 11am, Wed., June 5th at 10am, Thurs. June 20th at 10am and Thurs. July 18th, at 10am.

Art Chat is held at the Tuckerton Library, located at 380 Bay Ave in Tuckerton.  

Art Chat is usually held on the first and third Thursdays of each month... however, the Library has asked for a schedule adjustment so School children may tour the Library in May and June, and due to the July 4th holiday there will only be one Art Chat that month.

In August the normal schedule of first and third Thursdays at 10am will resume.

Art Chat was formed for the purpose of sharing a common interest in Art and Photography with anyone who wishes to attend.  Participating Artists are asked to bring a painting or photograph to share but, it's not required. The goal is to encourage and share knowledge in a friendly and helpful environment. 

Many thanks to the Tuckerton Library for making the Museum room available for our meetings and making us feel very welcome. The only policy that they have requested that we follow is that we do not bring Nude works of Art to our discussions at the Library.  Anyone with interest in that subject is encouraged to contact Pine Shores Art Association for information and classes.

For last minute cancellations or changes, please check PSAA's Facebook page or the oceancountylibrary.org for Library closings or other pertinent information.

Hope to see you at Art Chat! 

- Nancy Glines

Won't you hop on our volunteer train? PSAA needs a few good people to help, especially with Membership (Nancy Edwards will work with you). PSAA is a wonderful organization and it is due to our dedicated volunteers. Come Do Your Own Thing on a Wednesday and to a Gen’l Meeting on a Monday evening to see if there is a place for you to help. 

Happy Mother's Day to all, and let us pause to remember our fallen heroes on Memorial Day amidst the BBQs and fun.
