Vermeer & Rembrandt Oct. 29

The art of our 2 most famous painters will be presented at the Walpole Library Thursday evening, Oct. 29, at 7:30. This presentation is free and open to all and is being sponsored by the Friends of the Walpole Library. So if you are interested in the work of Vermeer or Rembrandt you owe it to yourself to see and hear about these two great artists. Beth Knaus of ArtMatters will show us their work and discuss the challenges they both faced.

Oct. 14 Meeting

Before our demonstrator performed, we discussed a variety of events including a planned "Small Works Show" for members in April at the Gallery at Patriot Place and the last "paint out" of the year, planned for this Saturday, Oct. 17, at Patriot Place. Also, since our Treasurer, Paula DePierro has relocated to Middleboro, after more than 10 years, we need a new treasurer, along with a new Secretary to compile our minutes. Our next meeting is pushed back one week because of Veterans Day with the library being closed. Therefore, we will meet the 3rd Wednesday next month, Nov. 18.

Our  meeting demonstrator was Kelley MacDonald, who painted a small acrylic of jelly doughnuts while the audience salivated. She claimed these small paintings, along with those of drinks, were popular among the buying public. She talked while she painted and was a big hit.
