NORTHWEST FLORIDA ARTS ASSOCIATION
Welcome to the January newsletter. We’ve been busy since our last newsletter. The Art Lair is no longer at the Santa Rosa Mall. Happy to say, we have found a new permanent space at Fountain Square in downtown Fort Walton Beach. Instead of opening only weekends, we will now also be opened during the week. Hours will be posted on the website soon. If you would like to volunteer at the Art Lair, please email me.
The first gallery show is “Stealing Picasso.” Artwork is due on Saturday, February 12 and the show opens Friday, February 18. Find the entire year’s gallery show schedule in this newsletter and on the website. The class/workshop schedule is still being posted on
the website. The last page of this newsletter has a list of the schedule so far. If you have any ideas, or would like to teach, a future class or workshop, please email me at email@example.com.
We’ve also added a pay pal option to the site so classes, etc. can be paid for on the website. You don’t need to have a pay pal account to use this option.
Welcome to new members: Megan Long, Angel
Agagas, Charles McCanty, and Piper Gaffrey.
Until next time....

BOOK CLUB SELECTION
The Private Lives of the Impressionists
by Sue Roe
Barnes & Noble – $12.34
Brief Synopsis –”In a vivid and moving narrative, biographer Sue
Roe shows the Impressionists in the studios of Paris, rural lanes
of Montmartre and rowdy riverside bars as Paris underwent Baron Haussmann's spectacular transformation. For more than twenty years they lived and worked together as a group, struggling to rebuild their lives after the Franco-Prussian War and supporting one another through shocked public reactions to unfamiliar canvases depicting laundresses, dancers, spring blossoms and boating scenes.”
