JULY, 2017
Hope you are enjoying the fine summer weather we are having here in Victoria.

Tomorrow is the Moss St. Paint In, and I hope many of you make it out to check out Victoria Artists,
including our own…Victor Lotto will be there…this is his 19th. year as a participant.  Anne Bowen and
Niramond Prudtatorn will also participate.   Take pictures of our Members, and send them to me…I will be
unable to attend.  
The Bowker Creed Brush Up is Aug. 13th…Victor, Caroline, Bonny and Rory will participate.  Christine and
Larry might go again this year.  It is always nice…the smell of hamburgers on the grill flows through the air,
people bring their beloved dogs, people chatting everywhere.  I ti such a pleasant  meeting of artists and the
Oak Bay Community.  

Don’t forget that Sharon Stone is at the Laurel Point Hotel, as Artist in Residence for the month of July.  
Hope that is the correct term for her work there!

Late June, we gathered at Ogden Point for our Tuesday paint out.  Here are some pictures:  Peter
arcetta,  Rand, Joan, Agnes and Myra.
Rand Harrison, and Nirmala Greenwell have paintings accepted for the Sooke Arts Show, on from July
28th., to Aug. 7th.  Check out their website for details, including opening night festivities.
In early July we met at Fisherman’s Wharf…many stayed for lunch, munching on fish and chips from Barb’s
grill.  Always good.  Here are some pictures of some of us: Amy, Liz and Ray.
Folks, please continue to come out for our Tuesday paint outs.  Next week we will be in Cordova Bay…we
have been there before at the Johannessen's..beautiful beach front home with lovely gardens, and ocean

Stay well. See you soon, Joy Jondahl, Communications Director
