Updates 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 Convention has been cancelled, and the Exhibition has been modified to an online venue. The deadline for submission was extended an extra sixty days, and as you can imagine, there was a record number of entries this year.  We can expect some of finest Colored Pencil Art ever displayed.
  • While our April 18th Members Meeting was cancelled, we’re offering weekly Studio sessions every Tuesday via Zoom. 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 Colored Pencil Pals. I hope to see you there.
  • The DC119 Annual Exhibition Artist Reception will take place at the Fairfield Community Art Center on July 31st from 6-8PM. You still have time to enter. The registration deadline has been extended to July 14th to members and all local colored pencil artists. Additional information and registration is available in the menu
  • The Jesse Lane Workshop in October has been cancelled due to current COVID risks – (more)

Well, that ‘s all the news that is news.  If you have any questions, feel free to  email at President@CPSA119.org, or join us live at the Colored Pencil Pals every Tuesday.  Join at your convenience anytime between the hours of 11 AM & 2 PM.
