Members’ Night 'Show and Tell'
Gerry Shamray, Dan Driscoll, Eddie Mitchell
(plus workshop previews by
Launie McDevitt & Lee Peters)
On this very cold
evening in January, 34 members and one guest, came out to see
Gerry, Dan and Eddie talk to us about their artwork.
That’s a very nice show of support from our membership when you
consider this was the very same evening as the big college
football game! But then again, the January meeting is
always one of our favorites and as we heard someone say....“the
best meeting ever.” “Northeast Ohio really is teeming with
Shamray, who considers himself the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
of cartoonists, started the evening off with his slideshow
presentation. Followed by
Driscoll, a ‘wanna be’ cartoonist and whimsical artist.
Mitchell’s life, as an artist, teacher, gardner, builder,
etc., flashed before us on the screen over next 30 minutes.
We thank each of them for an entertaining evening of art!
For more information and pictures from each presentation, please
Thanks also to Launie and Lee for their short preview of
upcoming workshops on Zendalas and Photoshop Elements.
Frosty the Snowman was the
theme for the evening’s refreshments. We thank our hosts,
Juanita Sweet and Kelley Davis...first timers. They did a
fantastic job! We enjoyed so many tasty treats - two kinds
of chicken salad sandwiches on Hawaiian rolls, fresh fruit of
blueberries, pineapple slices and strawberries, veggie tray,
garlic coated black olives, spinach and crap dips, excellent
assortment of zucchini breads - banana, cranberry, chocolate
chip, plus homemade cookies. The graham cracker crunch
cookies were a big hit....Juanita shares her recipe, below.
Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Cover entire
sheet with whole graham crackers.
Bring one cup (2 sticks) butter to a boil.
Then add 3/4 cup brown sugar to butter and bring to a boil,
Pour mixture over crackers and spread.
Sprinkle with flaked almonds (about 5-6 oz.) Can
substitute walnuts. I use more than 5-6 oz.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 min.
