“Swap, Shop and Save A Lot” Meet


 APS January 10, 2015 Meeting

10am until 12 noon

Grace Community Church

Start collecting those unused or gently used art items.

For instance, books, videos, DVD’s, magazines, paper, canvas, pastels, erasers, brushes,
small to mid-sized painting reasonably priced, art cards,
or any items that another artist or patron could use are just a few examples.

We will have tables set up for this in the Exhibition Hall of the Church.

There is NO CHARGE to set up or for tables.  All proceeds benefit the seller.

We will be inviting vendors and the public as well…Paul deMarrais will demonstrate use of his hand-made oil sticks, and will have on hand a supply of his buttery soft pastels.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED A TABLE.  Hope to see everyone there.  Kitty Williams  bk@btes.tv

Refreshments will be served. When you come to our meeting bring a friend!
