August is the fifth month of the year to have 31 days. One extra day tagged on for artists to draw, paint, illustrate, take photos and simply create! I hope as an artist you are working on some awe-inspiring pieces through these summer months to enter in the upcoming shows at Pine Shores Art Association.
There will be a chance to show off your black and white only artwork (no color hues allowed) in the B&W Show. Then the Photography Show that always brings unusual and stunning photos to our gallery walls. And of course, that show where many of us work towards is the Fabulous Fakes show (submit on September 29th).
This is one not to miss. All of you imposters of Monet, Wyeth, Manet, Cezanne, Homer and other great masters can surface to meet the challenge of entering a copy-cat painting. Even some tongue-in-cheek artworks have appeared in the past.
Don’t forget our free DO YOUR OWN THING on Wednesdays to work on your artwork. Bring your lunch and create masterpieces and friends.
I hope to see you around the gallery in the upcoming days.
As the hot summer days are put behind us, crowds of beach-goers fading into the distance, and school days begin again, what are your plans for the next few months? The colors of beautiful flowers may also disappear but the fall colors arrive with the most brilliant of reds, yellows, and orange hues to bring the landscapes new and interesting scenery.
Plein Air is the way to enjoy the fresh new palette of colors and the oncoming crispness of air as you paint the landscape of the fall season.
Also, photography yields some beautiful shots of our beautiful landscape including the beach, skies, and silhouettes at dusk, and our parks with fall foliage.
No matter what source you use just enjoy the incoming cool sights and weather.
Thought:A painting or photo = a memory in a frame
P.S. Don’t forget our upcoming Photography Show in September.

DYOT (Do Your Own Thing), from 11am to 2:30pm, will meet at PSAA as always
October is a very interesting and busy month at PSAA. We start with the Fabulous Fakes Show reception on October 2nd. This Show is always amusing. Our Pine Shore artists each show appreciation of fine art by choosing and copying a master’s original painting. This Show is not one to miss... mark your calendar!
At the end of the month we will be adorning the gallery with paintings for the Art Harvest Show, a juried show and yet another creative event. I am looking forward to visiting both events and seeing what our artists have been working on.
There are classes being offered in early October as well. A two-day workshop in pastels with one of the new artist/instructors to PSAA, Lyn Asselta. And. there will be two different approaches to oil and acrylics this month with Linda Ramsay and Jason Ward teaching both media on different dates.
Our Artists helping Artists day has moved to Wednesdays from 2:30pm to 4:30pm (except the last Wednesday of the month). I am hoping to see some new faces there with the change in hours. Come out to work on your masterpiece and mingle with others, and be home in time for dinner!
Thought for October: Draw, paint some Boo-tiful works of art.
