“It Was There All Along”

What a great show this is. The reception was lovely and we had the added addition of live music. This always makes a difference in my book. Archway Gallery was hopping due to the Beaches Art Walk. Here’s the brochure from the evening: ItwasThereAllAlong. Pat Setser really outdid herself. Congrats to: John Roppolo who took Best in Show for “21st Century Man”, Joyce Gabiou for her 2nd place win with “Made in Slovenia”, and Vicky Lennon for 3rd place for her “The Spirit of the Heart”. Honorable Mentions went to: Sharon Kuhn (“On With the Show”) and Angela Sporanzi for “Frosty Morning”. If you haven’t seen the show definitely visit. It’s worth it and the Gallery is full of wonderful stuff.

Note: Gelli Plate workshop location is Trends Home Decor!

Hi all,

It’s me again! The location for the June Gelli workshop is Trends Home Decor, 3919 Hendricks Avenue. We had to make the change because the library took away an hour and a half from our reserved time. We definitely need enough time to Gelli!

You are a great audience!

I wanted to thank all who attended the March 21 meeting for your kind response to my Gelli Plate program. I get a bit nervous when I present my ideas for art which is probably why I don’t exhibit more than I do (that’s a resolution for this year). Your attention, engagement and support during the presentation was very encouraging and supportive. I look forward to getting more in depth with you at the workshop. Since the June workshop is filled, please indicate your interest in attending a second one. You may email me at cellibo@gmail.com. Sincere thanks! Christy

New Meeting Location

SoMMA has been struggling to find a Saturday meeting place for the membership.  The libraries which have the larger community rooms are taken up with elections and/or other government meetings for March and May.  So SoMMA has signed a contract to rent facilities at the Adam W Herbert University Center for the meeting months of March, May, July, September and November.  The parking for this building is FREE, unlike the parking for the rest of UNF.  The January meeting will still be held at the SE Regional Library on Deerwood Park Blvd.

UNF link: http://www.unf.edu/universitycenter/Map_and_Directions.aspx

Campus Printable Map:  http://www.unf.edu/map/images/CampusMap.pdf  it is Building 43 and Lot 16 for FREE parking.

I am about to send my first SoMMA Newsletter. I am using a plug-in on the website that should automatically send it to all those who are Registered. So this is one more reason for you to Register if you have not yet. You can also tell you friends that they can sign up to receive the Newsletter on the website (it’s in the side bar.) Please be patient while I learn this new thingy! It’s harder to add photos and stuff and I may be choosing a new template if I don’t get this one to cooperate. I hope you enjoy it.
