Welcome

April 2020 Message From Ric Forney, President, CPSA DC119

Hi Everyone, I hope this message finds you well, safe, and healthy.

Monthly updates like this are usually sent at the beginning of each month letting you know what’s planned in the weeks ahead. This message is a few days late due to our current situation and the changes are significant. But, every cloud has a silver lining, and I hope you are as excited as I am with the new schedule.

  • As you probably aware the CPSA International Exhibition has been modified to an online venue. Furthermore, the deadline for submission has been extended until May 31st. That’s an extra sixty days! Additionally, if your artwork is selected you’ll still receive all the benefits of acceptance, but without the added expense of cartage, framing and shipping. Whether you are a professional artist, a hobbyist, or just like to draw, I encourage you to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
  • While our April 18th Members Meeting will be cancelled, you recently received an online meeting invitation for DC119 Studio Time. With all the craziness going on around us I’m looking forward to devoting at least a small block of time every week to concentrate on art and sharing a good time with my fellow Pencil Pals. I hope to see you there.
  • Currently, both the July DC119 Exhibition and the Jesse Lane Workshop in October will take place as scheduled. The National Governing Board will make a final determination on the International Convention in Safety Harbor by May 1st.

Well, that ‘all the news that is news’. If you have any questions, feel free to call, text, email, or ask during studio time at the Pencil Pals meeting on Wednesday.
