NORTH PENINSULA SURFACE DESIGN GROUP MEETING NOTES
We had a wonderful December Potluck Christmas gathering with more than half of our 40 members in attendance. Some great show and tells too.
Here in Port Townsend we are fortunate to have the Northwind Arts Centeras a major supporter of the arts. Again this year they put on their show “Small Expressions 18”, submission of any kind of art as long as it is less than 15 x 15 x 15 inches.
They had over 300 submissions and over 100 artists. The Show opened December 5th and will run through December 30th. Our SDA chapter has 8 pieces in the show, by Leslie Dickinson, Pat Herkal, Barbara Houshmand, Debra Olson and Jean Marie Tarascio.
