August Notes....
Ahhhh, this cool weather is a balm to our skin, isn't it?

The weather may have cooled off, but the art happenings are definitely heating up. There are lots of opportunities to share and view great art!

First and foremost, our General Meeting is October 3 from 6-8 pm at the downtown library in the Marion Bingham room. We can inspire each other by sharing new (or old) work.

Another opportunity is the GOLDEN Acrylic A-Z Virtual Lecture/Demo, OCT 19, 5:30-7 PM (PT), 6:30-8 PM (MT). It is FREE!!! 

Check out the Open Calls for TVAA Artists:

There are TVAA Exhibitions to inspire you:
Opus is showing off at the Riverside Hotel's Water's Edge Gallery.

The Riverside Hotel is hosting a Holiday Night Market event November 18, 3-8 pm. It is a fun event and brings a lot of folks in to see your wares.

I usually post images from each current exhibit. For some reason my computer would not let me download any images. I am sure it is user error; I will have it fixed for next month.

If you have a special exhibit or showing for next month's newsletter let me know. I try to publish the newsletter on or near the 15th of the month.

Thanks so much!

Linda Feinberg:
I entered a church exhibit and surprisingly my poetry was accepted to their exhibit. I won't be able to attend the reception since I will be at my daughter's wedding in Utah, but I encourage readers in Idaho to attend and view the art and poetry on the theme from Psalm 46. This is the Christian translation of Psalm 46:10 (the Jewish one is a little different).

"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth"

I felt that some of my poems related to the Psalm as many of my poems reflect on my own spirituality. I have not been in many churches and it was amazing to me to see how big this one was when I went to drop off my binder. They even have their own coffee shop and book store there.
