Artist Showings

Many RRAFA artists are showing at our current RRAFA sponsored venues. Each venue coordinator is responsible for seeing that a quality show is put up and that hanging guidelines, bios, etc. are taken care of. RRAFA members may sign-up for the venues and talk to the coordinators at the meetings.

Some venues are for one month and some for two months. Go to the Shows and Events tab for more information or call/email the Venue Coordinator.

See Venues & Coordinators under Shows/Events/Calendar.  Only Members may show at RRAFA Venues and Members must contact the Venue Coordinator to schedule their art.


Sunshine

If anyone knows of a member who is ill or has passed away, please contact our Sunshine gal JoAnne Henault. You can e-mail her at: Zeldaanne@comcast.net


WebSite

Our ongoing goal is to  recognize all members on our website.  If you need help contact a Board Member. Even if you, personally, do not have internet access, a Board Member can help get you set up. This is a great opportunity for all members and visitors to the RRAFA website to get to know you and your work. 

We would like an artist statement or bio from all members for the website, along with 4 digital pictures of your work (make sure the images are at least 500 pixels wide - Larger is better.) Let Dana know if you want to include your email address as well as your personal website link.

Check your name on Gallery page to see what we have for you.

NOTE: You must still submit images for the official website.

Email Dana dbree007@mac.com  with bio and images.


April Meeting -10:00 AM Wed., April 26
Guest Speaker
Stan Miller, Award-Winning Watercolor Artist

RRAFA members were thrilled to have international watercolor artist Stan Miller as the guest speaker at our April 26th general meeting at SAS. Stan shared his philosophies, teaching experiences and insightful stories of his own work preferences with us. He also brought examples of his earliest works and, in one hour, created a landscape painting from one of his photos, giving us tips on design, composition and technique as he worked.
