and will be ready to answer your questions.
Refreshments are served after the presentation and

What an amazing start to our
new season. We had record breaking attendance at

We thank Dottie for her presentation, “The
Portrait, how I see it. The approach, techniques
& media.” In college, Dottie majored in
Portraiture and you can tell that this is still
one of her most favorite subjects to talk about.
